accutane missed dose?

So I went on a short weekend getaway this past weekend and (horrors) forgot to take my accutane with me! So after a small panic (the stress will probably cause a breakout this week), I realized there was nothing to do but miss two days. I am finishing my second month at 40mg per day and was wondering if i should make it up by taking 1/2 a pill more for 4 days. Is this an awful idea? will it even make a difference? what are possible effects of doing this?

Don't worry about two missed days. People can and have missed a whole week and noticed no significant difference.

1/2 a pill? How would you take half of a capsule with liquid contents? I do not recommend that at all! It's encapsulated usually for a reason so that the contents won't irritate the esophagus, the contents won't be released until hit by stomach acids. That's usually the reason for a gel cap anyway.
