can anyone help me calculate my total dose

I'm a 75kg male. Last tuesday I started taking 30mg roaccutane per day. My derm said she would probably increase the dosage at my next appointment in one month.

Assuming she bumps me up to 40 mg, could anyone help me to calculate how long how my course will be?

Thanks guys :D

Mainly it is around 0.5 - 1.0 mg/kg/day what you should be eating (for you it is 37.5 - 75mg/day).

I've heard also that the total dose is 120 - 150mg/kg so you will hit the limit in 202.5 - 258.75 days (if you are gonna be the first mounth on 30mg/day and the rest of your course 40mg/day)

Usually the courses are 4-6 months as far as I've heard.
