Hey,

Well I'm almost off my accutane (I'm currently at 92 mg/kilo)

I was clear for over 3 weeks however I got 3 pimpels yesterday and today...Should I be worried?

But my main question is:

How long does it take averagly before the side effects go away after you stopped the course?

I mean I really don't wanna have cracked lips for 3 more months or so!

After about 2 weeks your side effects should have pretty much dissapeared although Accutane stays in your body longer.

I've been on it since march 2th

and currently taking 1,23 mg/kilo (80 mg total each day)

==> I'll reach 120 mg/kilo on june 20th

How about the sun?

Cause I'm going to Rome july 3th, do I still have to be extremely carefull?
