Can I stop accutane yet ?

Recommended Posts

Hello I have been having mild acne since 11 (currently 16) and I was wondering If I can stop accutane yet. Doctor has put me on 20mg a day since December 16 last year. My skin is now cleared of pimples only leaving the redness and red marks left. My

Course would finish in November. I heard accutane can do bad damage if taken too long. So should I stop now? Would there be any risk of stopping now?

You can stop if you want but you are on low dose, so 12-18 months on a dosage like 20mg/day is normal. You are clear now, but you've only been on accutane for less than 8 months, so your cumulative dose is not within the range most likely to keep your acne away.
