Day 87 - I'm such an idiot!



So I was so sick of not having any improvement at all. I started taking 40mg/day instead of 30. My derm does not know this. I'm an idiot, I know.

Anyway, It's like the 9th day Im on 40mg today, I will go back to 30mg in 3 days, and I haven't noticed any difference at all. No extra side-effects, no improvement. FML

Hi, went to my Derm today. Didn't get a chance to ask him your 30mg vs 20/40mg question, but he said :1. It's the cumulative effect, not the highest dosage, that gives the best results.2. It's a balancing act between dosage and side effects3. When I go up to 40mg I can expect dry eyesSo I would say keep persevering with your current dosage, but if you aren't seeing results I can understand that you are frustrated. As I see it you have three options, keep doing what you're doing, buy some glasses and go on a higher dosage, or get a second opinion. Roaccutane isn't the only solution, and doesn't work for everyone so you might get better results with something else. I hope things get better for you soon.. :-
