Whats The Correct Way To Stop Taking Accutane ?

Recommended Posts

So ive been on accutane for 3 and a half months and im clear now and haven't broken out in over a month but my eyes are just too dry and eye drops don't work so im quitting but i was wondering if i should wean off of it or just stop completely. Im on 80mg so by weaning off it would start taking 40mg a day and then eventually stop.

Before you decide to change anything yourself, speak with your dermatologist. I think that weaning off sounds right. However, you should complete the full course (likely 6 months, right?). Finish taking 80 mg for this month. Next month (month 4), maybe take 40 mg. Month 5, 20. Month 6, 20? That makes the most sense to me.
