Those who have had an Accutane relapse

Recommended Posts

If you have previously been on accutane and your acne returned what was your dose on accutane? I am currently on an extremely high dose (120/140 mg) and my derm insists that it lesses the chance for relapse so id like to see if that may be true.

I've had 2 relapses, I was on 40 mg for 4 months the first time and 40 mg for 5 months the second time. This time I am taking a total of 40mg for 6 months. Hopefully the third time's the charm.

I've had 2 'relapses'. First time the dose was 60mg/day for 4 months. Second time the dose was 80mg/day for 4 months.

No one has posted that they have been on 6 months yet, nor someone with as high a dosage as me.......fingers crossed

My first relapse was mild but my derm put me on tane anyway.  My second relapse was absolutely brutal (my acne came back due to stopping the birth control--very hormonal) causing me to go on a third course.
