Month 1- 80mgs

Month 2- 80mgs

Month 3- 80mgs

Month 4- 120mgs: Which is where I am now. I'll be done with it on the 17th.

Month 5- ?

Month 6- ?

He said I would at least need 6 months but I am not sure of what mgs I'll be on. Maybe if I improve he'll drop me back down to 80mgs if not I guess I'll stay at 120mgs for another month.

I should be done in May! A week after my b-day and possibly the day CoN: Prince Caspian is released. :D

I've been put on 40mg/day for four months. And... I guess it'll stay that much, since the only time I saw my derm was when she prescribed it, and I won't get to see her again. Probably be fine though.

I take 60 mg/day (30 in am, 30 in pm) - and my course will last 5-6 months.

I am 118lb female (5'6") so I think this is a fairly high dosage for my weight??

female, 5'9, 130 lbs

month 1- 40mg

month 2-40mg

month 3- 80mg

month 4-80mg

I'm just a week into month four. I don't really know what the derm's plan is, he said we'd just see how my skin got along...I would guess I'll do months 5 and 6 at 80mg. I want to stay on a low maintenance dose, maybe 20/mg a week after that, but I'm not sure if he'll go for it. As for my progress, still breaking out quite consistently, but I think I'm over the crazy IB phase, and my skin is very gradually settling down.

For those of you that are taking relatively low doses (20mg), how much do you weigh? I'm just curious. I was prescribed 80MG a day, and I'm 150lbs.

I have a related question. Im on 60mg at the moment and have about a month and a half left - to get it over with quicker is it safe to increase the dosage to 80mg. Has anyone done anything like that?

Hey syrup,

I weigh 150lbs and started on 80mgs too. It seems like everyone starts on 40 so i was thinking that it was too high. How long have you been on it?
