Low Dose Accutane

155 posts in this topic

If a 6 month course of 2.5mg can result in permanent remission for some as these studies suggest, then surely a 1 month course of 20mg could also cause permanent remission for some, given that it is 8x the former dosage?

I'm taking 20mg right now, although I am having it EoD (so I guess this is 10mg a day) and I don't want to be on it longer than necessary. My acne is mild to moderate and as a result of steroids.

I'm entering Week 2 with 20mg/day and so far don't have any side effects other than one massive headache and mild joint pains. I'm very anxious about the next few weeks though, hope this dosage will be enough. What to expect? I will be on it for 4-5months.

I do not want a relapse and would definitely not be going on this drug again. I plan on getting pregnant one year after I quit Accutane, I hope its out of my system by then. Will keep you all posted, fingers crossed.
