Is 40mg of tane 2x a time considered a 80mg dose?

Recommended Posts

2 40mg just seems to high of a dose for my situation.

Also, people with oily skin that went on tane, how did it affect that aspect of your skin?

accutane will pretty much get rid of all the oil. I had combination skin and now the oil is all gone. it will most likely come back at least somewhat after you finnish accutane though. The usual dosage is around 1mg/kg/day. i weigh about 135 lbs which is about 60kg. so I am on 60mg/day.

I personally do not like the idea of going over 40mg a day and i weigh 180lbs

Well, that's on the lower side of the dosing structure, only .5mg/kg. 1mg/kg is the "standard" dose, and Roche's stated max dose is 2mg/kg, but that's recommended only for very serious cases that don't respond to the standard dose.
