Last pill of accutane

I just took my last pill of Accutane last night, and I am happy and worried at the same time. I have not had a breakout in a couple months, but still have redmarks. I am scared that the ance will just come back when I stop taking accuatane eventhough I have been on 80 mgs/day for 5 months and only weigh 150 lbs. and had only moderate acne.

FOR PEOPLE THAT ARE DONE WITH ACCUATNE: also want to know what would be the best facial washes to use to be gentle, but still prevent future breakouts from returning.

I am going to continue to just use dove soap with oil of olay moisturizer. from what i have read ... this seems to be the choice for many to stay away from washes like proactiv. this is my 2nd month on 80mg and I have one more month to go. hopefully it starts to accelerate my issues. good luck!

Re: Last pill of accutane

I would recommend using something gentle and not overdoing it with products. Something like cetaphil wash and moisturizer works really well.
