Finished 4 months of 80mg/day accutane and I was originally only scheduled for a 4.5 month course, however the derm said today he wants to up the daily dosage after not seeing that I was 100% clear.
What I really don't get is that I am almost 100% clear, it's just I have some red marks from past pimples (usually popped ones) that make it look like I still have some slight acne, but my derm is insistent on getting me 100% clear (can't argue with that).
He wants me to take 40mg in morning and then 80 mg at night each day for 2 weeks, then 80 mg in morning and 80 mg at night for another 2 weeks to finish the course.
I am not one to argue with docs, but this increase in dosage seems a little bit absurd, especially with the fact that I am almost completely clear. I respect my body too much to overload it with tane (also I really don't want to intensify my chapped lips/dry nose and skin since its winter).
Should I follow this, or should I just a normal 80mg/day dose for another month? I feel like upping the dosage will make the red marks harder to fade :/
