6 month of accutane done - been at low dosages

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I weigh 165lb or 75kg and I just finished my 6th month of accutane. My acne wasn't bad (I had terrible cystic acne 6 years ago and went on accutane for that) but this time around, my skin was really oily and would get the occasional pustule or papule.

Anyways, I went on accutane earlier this year; but on a really low dose. For the first 3 months, I was on 30 mg, then the 4th month, 40 mg and the 5th month 50 mg. After a few days of stopping at the 5th month, I broke out like crazy so my doc gave me 2 more months of 50mg and referred me to a derm.

So I just finished my 6th month and my total accumulative dose is 6900 of the 9000 which would be a proper treatment. I don't get to see the derm until Aug 1st so should I get that final month of 50 mg?
