Is it possible to start using ro-accutane again?

I stopped using ro-accutane about 7 months ago, i was on a very high dosage 120mm for four months. (they wanted me to be on 60mm, i took the decision to go on a higher dosage) After i stopped taking it i was told that i would have the occasional breakout however im starting to think it would be worth me going to my doctor and asking to be put back on accutane as i feel my acne is starting to come back. Would that be possible? am i allowed to reuse accutane after iv'e been on such a high dosage?

P.S. I had no side effects at all from using the drug so that has to be a plus right?

any advice would be appriciated. thanks.

yes it is possible, visit your derm at once. my derm wil not give accutane for a year after you stopped it, but my derm is wierd. i think most say about 2-3 months before you can start a 2nd round if needed.

good luck
