if you're prescribed 60mg/day...

Recommended Posts

are you suppose to take 20mg in the morning and two 20mg pills in the evening?

what i really mean to ask is: is taking two 20mg pills at the same time the same thing as taking one 40mg pill? is this safe? effective? Has any of your dermatologists prescribed this?

I am on a 60mg a day dose and I take (2) 20mg in the morning around 9 and then (1) 20mg pill around 2 in the afternoon. I have been doing this my entire course and I am almost on my 6th month and thus far I have not had any bad experiences with it. Hope this helps

I'm on 60 mgs a day, and locally you can only buy the 40's.

My derm has me taking two- 40 mg pills on the even days of the calendar and one 40 mg on the odd days.

She explained to me that your body builds up a serum, and that it is the serum levels that matter. I was told to take them both at the same time if I was on an even day.

If you aren't sure, call your doctor and ask what they want you to do. You could probably call your pharmacy as well.
