Is My Dosage Okay?

22 July 2013 - 02:43 PM

Hi ^.^

I'm Georgia and I'm 14, I've been on Roaccutane for about 2 and a bit months and its my second time trying the drug. I'm 5ft1 and about 63kg, and I have had acne since I was 8 due to an extreme amount of sebum in my body :s
I am currently on a dosage of 60mg, and my dermotologist said that if my current treatment isn't working she will put me onto 80mg. I'm a bit concerned, as surely that's really high? Should I be worried?
I currently get very dry skin, back and muscle pain and minor nosebleeds as side effects and its rather painful, I don't want to experience more!:( But I wish to have lovely clear skin:( So would 80mg be too much, or am I overreacting?
My dermotologist did say that is very unusual for a girl of my age to have to re take roaccutane :(
