Lightbulb Why is accutane a 5 month treatment?

Has anyone ever wondered whay it is a 5 month treatment? I am on it now and have 2 months to go and just wondering what is so special about 5 months?

Because taking it for a prolong period of time would be too hard on your liver. 5 months is about the ideal length and that's probably length of time they used in their first studies of the drug.
