I take 40mg Accutane a day. I can not get prescription until Tuesday. On Monday (last day) it a good idea to extract the powder from a 40mg capsule and cut it in half so I have 20mg and 20mg of powder? If so should I put it in a vitamin capsule, dissolve it in water and drink, or just snort it like creatine?

Don't ever cut your pills.  You'll be fine if you miss a few days.  Don't double up on what you missed either.

It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end.  Here's to finding my end.


God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

I missed a week of pills because I couldn't get a hospital appointment when I had run out of them and had to wait. My derm told me it was fine because accutane stays in your system up to 5 weeks so don't worry :)
