*related to my last post
Almost 4.5 months done a steady 80mg/day course, and when I went to my derm visit a week ago, he suggested I prolong my course (intended to be 4.5, but now he wants around 5-5.5) and increase my dosage to 120mg/day for 2 weeks, and then 160 mg/day for the last 2 weeks.
First of all, I think this is pretty absurd considering I do not have any active pimples (maybe one minor one thats fading) it's just I have redness left after the acne I got on the early stages of accutane which might make it look like there is still acne.
Would increasing/prolonging my course actually make things worse since I really only have redness now? I heard that once you stop accutane, the redness will slowly fade away because your body starts becoming normal and less irritated.
However, I am considering doing the 120mg/day for 2 weeks just to insure I never have acne again, but I am definitely not putting 160mg/day tane in my body..I would dry up like a raisin, plus im already over the cumulative dose range from what I've researched.
