The shortest time for accutane usage.

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what was the shortest period of time someone used accutane for before stopping the treatment due to the face being completely clear and considering the fact that there was no need to go on with tane.

Thanks!

i was on for only 3 months at 40 mg for first 2 weeks, then 80 mg the rest of the way. My face was clear for a year and a bit. However after 2 years of my 3 month course, i went on it again. This time i am on it for 4 months, and currently in my last month biggrin.gif
