Long Term Low Dose Accutane Usage

Recommended Posts


I have some questions that I've been thinking a lot about.

I just started taking 10mg of accutane a day. I plan on taking this dose until I see my oily skin decrease significantly and mild acne clear up. I've read about a lot of people who can maintain their oil free skin on something like 10mg - 20mg A WEEK.

My main question...

If such small amounts of accutane can be used to keep oily skin and mild acne at bay, why could those small weekly doses not be taken for ever?

Second question...

Anyone else who took/is taking 10mg a day, how long did it take for your acne and oily skin (if you have it) to subside?

Thanks guys.

My bad for posting a lot lately. I'm just trying to get handle on some things.
