I'm seeing my dermatologist next week. Initially he wanted me to start accutane, but I opted to try out Retin-A. During this appointment I'm going to try and have him prescribe the accutane.
My question is, I want to try low dose therapy (either 10mg or 20mg daily). If my derm doesn't believe in low dose therapy and is only willing to prescribe me the full dose (40mg, 60mg, or whatever), can I have the same effect as low dose therapy if I take the accutane less often?
Is 10mg/daily = 40mg every 4 days?
Does this have the same effect as the low dose therapy I want? I'm not sure of accutanes half-life btw.
