Completely clear when finishing accutane

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’ve been on (ro) accutane for 8 months now and been pretty much clear since month 1 with just the occasional spot every couple of weeks. 

My derm says to “cure” my acne I should stay on it until I go at least a month without a spot. 

Wondering whether this was the same for other people who have finished accutane?

with the new research, you are supposed to be clear for a full month and then after that happens, you stay on the drug for an additional 3-4 months. There is a doctor on realself.com Dr. Riekl who takes 20mg a day himself and has prescribed Accutane to his patients for over 20+ years and this is how he operates when prescribing Accutane.
