Isotretinoin 20mg for 4 months treatment is enough?

Recommended Posts

My doctor recommended me to take Isotretinoin 40mg for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks, my face was clearer and my doctor just asked me to take 20mg daily for 3 months. She said a period of 4 months can be enough.

- The first 3 weeks: Isotretinoin 40mg + L-cystine B6 1g + Acneteen 1 capsule daily. I had a lot of breakouts for the first 10 days, and decreased after that.
- The next 3 months: Isotretinoin 20mg + L-cystine B6 1g + Acneteen 2 capsules daily. I rarely had pimples in the first month and my face has been absolutely clear since the second month until now.

I still have a lot of red spots/hyper-pigmentation but no acne. Is 4 months treatment with low accutance enough? since I am worried that the pimples will come back after a few months and I have to face even worse break-out.
