Stopped Accutane Early, A Month Has Passed, Should I Go Back On It?

Recommended Posts

So I completed 5 months of Accutane, and after previously having severe acne (it made those stupid proactive ad before shots look like heaven) my skin is fully clear!

I didn't really have a medical reason, the only side effects I got were dry lips and easy sunburn, but I stopped at 5 months.

I was only on 20 mg/day dose the entire time and it worked wonders, now a month off, I got my first two pimples in a few months.

I freaked out and since I had 1 month at least (could get more) left, I decided to jump back on it until the course is fully done.

Is that okay to just return to it after stopping for a month? I am so paranoid that it will return (I'm 17 y/o) and frankly I'm still trying to heal scarring, I would legit be devastated if it returned even half as bad as it was.

So my question is, should I finish the course (the final month) after a month off, or do I wait?
