It depends: Dermatologists can suggest a variety of medications that can be used after Accutane treatment, and oral contraceptives are sometimes recommended. Topical medications can also be used. If acne is still severe, another round of Accutane is sometimes the best choice of treatment, but the dermatologist is the best person to ask about what is the best plan for each patient.
