Hello everyone! I can tell you that my oil is not the same as pre-accutane oil. I used to blot 20 times a day. I sometimes now find oil on my face in the very early morning or late in the evening after a long work day. I am still Acne free except for an occasional pimple. It has only been about 3 months off of Accutane now. I was a pretty low doser. I don't know what to expect from here on out. My Derm says come on back at the first sign of trouble. Accutane has been a godsend for me. I have had two laser treatments since my Accutane cessation. They are doing a great job on my pores. My Rosacea has been in remission since the start of Accutane. I had a few flares in the first month of Accutane usage and then it subsided. I am not sure how long I will stay clear at this point. I will continue to post periodically to let readers know how I am doing for the sake of curiosity. I will go back on low dose Accutane if need be..... Remember, I support low dosing of this drug and have a great fear of high dosages. I do believe that high dosages have harmed some people. However, some individuals seem to do fine on the high dosages. I just don't want to be made to bleed from ingesting a drug. Doesn't seem like a good idea. Be sure to use Pubmed and Medscape while building your case if you feel like going low dose. Remember that Doctors are skeptical of anything that has to do with the internet or anecdotal blogging. You got to sell them on the legitimacy of the studies that you will find on these sites. Accutane may of may not work for everyone. It was a miracle for me. I still wonder if down the road I will pay some sort of price for using it. You need blood work with this drug for sure. Don't self medicate. Try to convince your Derm that low dose is for you. Remember that even giving less of this drug is still off label. Doctors resist off label treatments to protect their licenses and I don't blame them.....

PS. I had oil during Accutane treatment, just not a lot. I am about the same now post Accutane.

Best of Luck
