I went to the derm today to begin month 2...lovely. He said absolutely nothing encouraging, saying i have to deal with 4-5 month of my face being like this. Then he said he's doubling my dose. So i have to take 40 mg in the morning and 40 mg at night!

Ive read here that when you up your dose...you breakout??? Is that really the case???

Because i just got home from the derm and bawled my eyes out I really dont wanna deal with this anymore...i wanted a clear start this year and to feel pretty and now i cant have that for freeaking 4-5 months!!!!

So basically my ? is when you got your dosage upped did you breakout more??

and I didnt think my acne was that bad(mild to moderate at most)? why am i up to 80 mg?? im only 105 lbs...

believe, love, hope,

That dose does seem high for your weight. As for the breakout, most do have a breakout with an increase. I went from 40mg to 60mg and had one, but the breakout wasn't bad.
