Accutane US - Europe

Whe i read these boards and the boards in Holland, I have the idea that you people in the US get higher doses of Accutane prescribed. I get 30 mg weighing 60 kg (120 lbs). In Europe (the netherlands) the doctors normally prescribe 0,5 mg per kg. Why are other meds (especially in the us) giving higher dosages, as this isn't neccesary?

nonetheless I was taking 40 for most of the time cuz my GP was also prescibing it to me smile.gif

i weigh about 50kg, and my doctor gave me 80mg.. he told me not to worry as a higher dosage doesnt mean higher side effects, i dunno though.. im still only taking 1 pill a day (40mg) kinda of skeptical taking that high heh
