  1. Hi, I finished my first course of accutane accumulating 120mg/kg about 3 months ago. My acne never stopped during the course and after so my dermatologist put me on another course. I've been on the second course for 2 weeks now, same dosage as before (40mg twice a day(80mg a day)). The first week of my 2nd course, I was staying clear, not getting any breakouts.

I started the first 3 weeks on 40mg/day, then for the next 4 weeks I went on 40mg a day and 80 mg (40x2) every other day, and for the final 9 weeks, I was on 80 mg a day (40x2). The thing is, I was pretty clear throughout the entire course and didn't even get a initial breakout, however I was prescribed low doses of prednisone throughout the entire course to help with new breakouts.
