How to end accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey I'm 70 kgs taking a daily does of 40mg of accutane. I take two 20mg pills a day. I've got one month to finish it off, so is it better to decelerate the dosage so that my body gets used to the lack of isotretinoin? Like I'd start taking 20mg instead, and then start taking 20mg every other day, and slowly get myself off it.

Sounds pretty logical to me, is that the right way to go or should I just finish them on 40 mg a day and surprise my body for its lack of isotretinoin?

It will make no difference whatsoever. Side-effects (including dry skin, etc) will be alleviated a little with a smaller dose. You can do it if you want, but there's almost no point.
