Is It Possible To Be Done With Accutane In 4 Months?


I have just talked with a dermatologist and I asked how long he want me to go on accutane.

He said he wanted me to go on accutane for 6 months. BUT - I told him that I would like to be done in 4 months. (because there is something happening in my life after 5 months which makes me not able to still be on accutane)

He said it would be no problem, but I need a higher dose.

Is it possible to be done in 4 months - without having the acne back?

Has anyone finished accutane in 4 months and not getting their acne back?

On my first round, I only did four months. I was clear for about two years so it is certainly doable. I took a fairly high dosage and am taking the same high dosage, four month course this round! :)

2x20mg and 2x5mg

Oh okay.

The doctor wanted me to go 2x20mg 2 weeks and then go over to 3x20mg for 1 week. Maybe going to 4x20mg afterwards if i dont get any huge side effects
