Lifetime dose of Accutane????

Recommended Posts

Hey guys
Has anyone heard of a maximum lifetime dose of accutane? 
Ive been on accutane 3 times -
2005, 2014, 2016, never had any bad side effects & bloodwork
always been good during my
courses. Sadly my acne keeps
coming back after I go off accutane. Went to my dermatologist
yesterday again and asked for a 4th round. She then said I have reached my "life-time dose" of accutane, and I won't get any doctor to prescribe me any more, this life-time dose was calculated somehow and now she says I can never again take
accutane. I've never heard of this, is this true!?? Anyone here who's done 4 or more courses of accutane??

Is this the NHS? Maybe they're just not willing to prescribe it again? I don't know to be honest. I had one course which was approx 12,000mg in total.
