Half life : The half life of Accutane is about 22 hours, his is the one it takes for the Accutane level in blood to decrease by 50%. After 5 half lives approximately 97% of the drug is gone from the blood. Do for Accutane this corresponds to 110 hours or about 4.6 days. The actual time depends on the liver and kidney function. People with kidney or liver disease may have longer elimination times.
