Should I reconsider accutane again?

Second course of accutane
Yes, sometimes a second (even third course) of accutane (isotretinoin) can be necessary for some folks. We know that the more isotretinoin you get in your system, the less likely you are to have relapses. Don't fret, each time you do it, your acne gets better and better. I would make sure you are taking at least 1 mg/kg a day, since accutane is weight based. Best of luck!
