Hoping That Second Dose of Accutane is Permanent - California

i didn't get great results with accutane the 1st time for very long i'm hoping this second course is permanent. i had all the usual side effects nothing too bad, nothing that i couldn't put up with to finally have clear skin.

i am now on my second course of Accutance, after teh first course my skin started breaking out 1 month after i was off. that was about 2 years ago. so now i'm back on accutane it's my 1st month and i'm concerned that 1 my doctor is not gving me enough ( 40mg a day ) before i had 40mg then 80 mg every other day. is there anyway to tell if i will need a third or fourth course of this drug? also should i do 40mg/80mg like before instead of just taking 40mg everyday

do not take accutane the sideeffects are not worth the results. this only cleared my skin for the time i was on it. i took it twice.

Same here, doctor started me with 40mg and then raised up to 70mg. It is a common technique to give the body some time to get used in this "violent" drug. Btw, what is this $1000 ? Are you kidding?
