Accutane dosage confusion

Recommended Posts

In this Wikipedia article it says, in regards to Accutane, 'Generally it is prescribed from between 0.5 mg/kg/day to 2 mg/kg/day (usually at 0.5 to 1 mg/kg/day[6], divided into two doses), for a total treatment of 4–6 months.'

But in the Accutane before/after thread people say they were on doses of 40mg, 60mg, 80mg, etc. Could someone please clear this up for me?

I weight 65kg so 65x0.5 would equal 32.5mg/day and im on 40mg/day it depends on how bad your acne is.
