Re: Post-Accutane
Oct 29, 2005
My acne came back (nothing as bad but cystic) after a year off accutane. I went on a second course (low dose 20 mgs) for three months. Totally kicked it for five years.

I started to break out on my chin along with my period. Spiro did the trick.

If the acne is hormonal (chin, jaw and associated with periods) - try spiro. If not, I'd recommend a second course of accutane. I probably could have avoided a second course on accutane if I (or my derm) had understood about spiro and hormonal accutane.

Good luck.
