hey man i had the same thing happen to me. My liver enzymes were elevated on the original blood test, so they said to wait two weeks, and then go back for more blood work. So yea i went for the blood work yesterday and it came back fine so im starting today. But yea man i know it sucks... almost depressing. Stick it out and think about if your taking any other supplements or drinking a lot of tea or taking tylenol cause this may affect your liver enzymes. If your not ingesting anything that will screw with your enzymes then its probably just the accutane. Hope it works out for you, good luck.

80mg's is way too much for your weight... thats probably why the bloods tests came back not so good. I am sure if you were on 40mg's you would be good.

yea maybe even see if they'd let you go down to 20, and then maybe increase it to 40 after a month. or maybe you only will need 20, but i dont know.

80mg just sounds too much then. I'm 160lbs and on my 2nd month. I started at 40mg and my derm said 40mg is perfect for my weight so she said that I will stick to 40mg. Effective but with hardly any side effects.

stupid liver why does it have to be so weak. grrrrrr.

Stupid liver or stupid your dose? You've my same weight. My height is 1.70 m. I can eat everything without troubles to my liver even 1.5 kg of a premium quality ice-cream like Häagen-Dazs but with Accutane I felt so bad just taking 10 mg per day when I started it.

I don't want any problem with Accutane. I've had a lot of them to get more now, so I'm taking 6.67 mg average per day. That's 0.18 mg per kg. It's a capsule of 20 mg each 3 days.

Actually, I don't believe in killer dosages prescribed by killer derms. If at least they prescribe up to 0.3 mg per kg, but unfortunately there're a lot of mad derms and psychians around people. True killers. They're a shame.

lol i know i know for my weight is too much but hey i went back with my derm today and she said that the problem was probably that half a beer i had. everything else seemed normal to her exept my liver which was five times worst than it normally is. :[ but hey she said i have to get some blood on monday and she'll see what to do. grrr but hey i like 80 mg because i'll mostlikely cure my ACNE. i really had no problem that one month with 80 MG just irritated eyes and joint pain and dry lips thats it.

The worst for me was the tiredness... yes... that was lethal, it's so bad for a life and it's a very ugly isotretinoin side effect.

This is a concern. It wasn't the beer. I can't believe she would have said this.

Dry lips will pass, but if you're having joint pain I'd consider the risk of that long term versus the acne which will pass. I'm have tendon problems in my feet and hands from my accutane treatment 5 years ago, which my dermatologist wasn't even aware of as a side effect. I would have opted for lasers had they been available then. They may not be affective or permanent as accutane, but it might get you through the acne years, without the possible long term side affects. The cost can be an issue since lasers aren't covered by most insurance, (figure 4-6 sessions at around $600 each.) You can get some good info on these treatments and where to find local docs on realself.com. If you do go that route, make sure you research any doctor and after you find one you like make sure they have experience treating your skin and acne type.

lol suzi your halarious

stylophonico your a fool. It seems like you dont care about your health so go ahead with the 80mg.

However I have a suggestions; Take you prescription, shove it up your dermatologists ass and then have him swallow your 80mg pills.

Hmmm. I've seen a lot of members on here take a quite a variation tane doses in the 5 years I've been on here. I've not seen anyone so light prescribed such a large dose without first meeting two qualifications:

1. SEVERE acne, really severe

2. Failure to respond to a lower dose after 3 months of taking it

I know you don't meet these. Ask your derm why your dose is so disproportionate to your size. If he doesn't say oops, beg an apology and lower it, gtfo. Seriously, find a new derm at that point - this isn't just acne that he's f'ng with - this may well affect the rest of your life.

------

Or really if he says oops at any point.

ok now im gettin scared so like i know 80 MG is a lot and my derm seems to be really cool about it. heck she even said that usually she starts them at 40 and takes them to 80. so i went to take my blood test today and they'll fax the results back to her and she'll call me back to tell me whats up.

peace....

My HIGHEST dose was 80mg a day and I weigh 185 pounds!

well you do have like 35 lbs more than me.

Thats my point bro, I think you should start at 40mg a day then progress to 60mg a day. I wouldn't go any higher than that. JMO.
