I was told that by my derm too because my acne is mild.

but then after 3 weeks on accutane my acne was worse than before I started (Initial breakout) and she put me on 40mg to help speed up the process...

but if your acne isn't getting worse 20mg is fine. it'll work too.

Its something really up in the air at the moment, whether or not to high or low dose the patient, n derms r experimenting a bit becoz theres no conclusive evidence either way. Keep at it for say, 2 months, if theres no improvement or even change then take the issue up with ur derm. 43kgs is pretty light. But who knows what the derm will do, u might walk in for ur first month checkup and get bumped to 40mg, who knows.

I'm also at 20mg for 8 months and I weigh 45kg. I also have mild-moderate acne and I took accutane for a month already. Basically I am clear and should be for you as well.

Trust your doctor on the dose, he knows what's best for you.
