... Hey all, I just got back from a derm appointment today. She said i should take accutane for one more month (making that 6 months of accutane, 40mgs throughout the course) and then ill stop, and begin taking a 'maintenance' cream?

... want to have to go back on it. I would not mind taking it 2 or 3 times a week. I don't drink alcohol at all, maybe that's something which may stop people taking maintenance doses but it wouldn't be a problem for me. ... (1 replies)

... is no way I'll ever want to go back to the way I was. And why I didn't do it twenty years ago. I think if my acne comes back again, I'd see if I could try a low maintenance dose to keep it under control long term. ... (26 replies)
Low Dose Accutane
Nov 13, 2009
... Well, 18 days off and all is good. No oil return. No breakouts. Get a few red spots on my forehead after exersicing, but they are not raised and don`t last long. I will ask the derm about that in my visit next month. It actually seems like my skin has continued to improve, although I did not think it was possible. I take 10,000 iu`s of vitiman A a day now in the morning. It is... (250 replies)
... ane. I have had two laser treatments for pores and veins on my nose. My face looks better than it has since I can remember.

Low Dose Accutane
Apr 16, 2009
... ange ones physiology is suspect to me. If this drug does change a person permanently I would be very suprised and very scared. I honestly believe that low dose maintenance therapy makes more sense in that supression seems reasonable. Yet individuals claim complete remissions for years. Amazing! ... (250 replies)
Low Dose Accutane
Apr 14, 2009
... Happy it is working for you too, LT. Derm said to me that despite the oil and recurring nose cysts I was "not all that bad compared to teens with full facial acne." I beg to differ, but she is the doc and sees more cases that she calls stubborn. Bottom line is that nothing else worked, ever...meaning for decades. The only "depressing" thoughts I have are related to post... (250 replies)
