accutane finale

What do you do when you complete accutane? I have been on it for 4 months and have just finished. Do I just stop taking them just like that? Or do I have to go off them slowly?

Re: accutane finale

I think the idea is you take the last one and that's it. No slow-down period. Just a complete halt. My dermatologist never told me any different.

Re: accutane finale

When I finished taking accutane I just took my last pill and that was that......not realizing that I'd only get about 4 months of clear skin post-accutane. Those 4 months were great though. My face was so low maintenance. No excess oil. No problems shaving. No pain. Got some confidence built up. But it's pretty hard having the acne come back once it's been gone for a short period.

By the by jhart, I've been meaning to compliment you on using one of my favorite William Butler Yeats quotations. It's from a beautiful poem.

Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Re: accutane finale

Thank you Ratman I heard it when Sean Bean's character read it in the film "Equilibrium" and it sounded very poignant to me.

Re: accutane finale

Ha, same here. That movie was great. I heard that and I was like "Wow, I gotta find that online and read it." Then it turned out to be W.B. Yeats.
