Relapse After Accutane?

Recommended Posts


Has anyone had a relapse after a course of accutane/isotretinoin??

I've been off tablets since December 2014 and it's coming back :( not as bad as before, but returning worse each day.

Is the prognosis of a second course higher than the first?

I'm awaiting to see the Dr to be referred back to my derm but the Nhs waiting lists are ridiculous!!

Hope someone can reassure me and tell me they've had the same as I'm feeling really crappy about it!!

Hi. I relapsed after the both courses I done, but I think my situation is uncommon. I have seen a lot of people need a second course and it can be very effective! Just not for me lol, but I finly got mime under control through topicals.

I totally get you on NHS waiting times I waited 5 months from my GP doing the referral to actually seeing the dermatologist, I know they are stretched and do their best but waiting that long is just awful.
