Best dosage for maintenance/relapse?

Recommended Posts

I have 7200 mg at my disposal.

180 40mg capsules. What is the best way for me to control my relapse?

I have been on accutane twice.

once for 4 months during the summer of 2003

once for 8 months (fall of 06 to summer of 07)

The first cycle was ineffective.

The 2nd cycle was very effective, clearing my skin a great deal. People were surprised to hear i ever had acne.

Most of my acne is on the inner cheeks and on the nose. also between the brows. I might also have a milf form of rosacea.

Now it seems like im breaking out a lot again and the rosacea type symptoms are coming back.


Here is my bottom line question. What is more likely to cure my acne? a shorter 2 month session of 120 mg a day or a longer low dose session?

I'm considering doing the 120 mg a day. I have the weight to handle it i believe. (6'2, 197 pounds)

I don't think anybody here is a dermatologist...best to ask a doctor!

If you want to go on another course for maint.... you'd be better off with low dose, like 10-20mg a day..... so the 40mg pills won't cut it and/or won't work out very well.

Ask your derm ;)
