Accutane Experience (5 month treatment)



3 Months & 1 Week Post Accutane

Posted by User02, 23 May 2014 · 128 views

Currently, I have around 8 small clogged pores (or non-inflamed whiteheads) on my forehead, which are a little difficult to notice unless in the proper lighting, and 3 small inflamed whiteheads around my mouth. Also, some blackheads are beginning to appear on my nose, but not nearly to the extent as before.


2 Months (Almost) Post Accutane

Posted by User02, 12 April 2014 · 114 views

Two days away from my second month off Accutane and I currently have about 5-6 very small, skin-colored bumps on my forehead. They usually go away after 3-7 days and a few additional ones may form.

Cumulative Dose

Posted by User02, 14 February 2014 · 115 views

My weight = 155 lbs or 70 kg
 
Total Cumulative Dose  = (60 days * 40mg) + (90 days * 80mg) = 2400 + 7200 = 9600 mg
 
9600 mg / 70 kg = 137 mg/kg
 
The standard dosage is between 120 mg/kg to 150 mg/kg, so I ended up in the middle.

Just Finished Month 4 Of 5

Posted by User02, 15 January 2014 · 109 views

I just thought I would share my experience so far with Accutane (specifically the generic brand Claravis). Today is the end of my fourth month; I will be starting my fifth and final month tomorrow. My initial dosage was 40mg/day for the first two months and was increased to 80mg/day for the last three months. I weigh 155 lbs.
 
Day 3: Noticed some pe...
