Stopped taking Accutane, now what?


You won't be on your regimen for what was allotted at the beginning because Accutane requires a specific dosage over a specific, continual amount of time. See your prescribing physician for an evaluation. You can re-start your medication, of course, but you are going to need more medication than what you were originally told since you took a break.
