Im sorry but i get so fed up of people asking this question in these forums.

All you need to calculate your cumulative dosage is calculator and a brain.

60mg a day for 5 months (150 days) = 9000mg

9000 / 80kg = 112.5 mg/kg

You wont quite make the reccomended dosage but i wouldnt worry that figure only i guidline and some derms dont bother with it. I wont reach it either unless my skin still bad in a few months time.

keelers, is this actually true? I'm dutch and I've read on a couple of dutch messageboards that a lot of people don't seem to reach their accumulative dose, their derms tell them this isn't always neccesary, can the effect still be permanent if 120mg/kg isn't reached?
