For now atleast, because I wont start my course until the start of December at the earliest. I have to get a couple of wisdom teeth removed at the end of the month and the derm recommended i wait until my gums heal before i start.
So I'm still not 100% convinced on tane, as previously mentioned my acne is no where near severe, sometimes its even mild but its persistent. When i wake up with a new pimple i'm all like 'yeah, definitely need tane, had enough', then other times I wonder if I'm being too superficial and risking my health for the sake of clear skin.
I already have my prescription, it'll be 40mg for the first month then likely increased to 60mg beyond that, not sure for how long or if it will be increased again i just know that those would be my starting doses. Based on my loose calculations i'd need a cumulative dose of 9125 (73kgs) which equates to just over 60mg for five months. The lowish starting dose does make me a touch less apprehensive about side effects though I'm really only worried about the real severe long term damage ones.
So time to wait for around 4 weeks to start in which I'll change my mind multiple times about whether this is the right choice for me.
