Hello everyone! I'm on my second month of Accutane.

Wondering whether anyone else is on the 40mg prescription?

My dermatologist has me alternating doses.

One day 2 pills, the next 1, repeat till next month when I check in again.

Hello and welcome to the org! I haven't been on Accutane, but if you go to the Accutane Logs, I'm sure you can find some information.

Here's the link:

Good luck and I hope to see you around! ^_^

Thanks so much for the welcome. Looks like everyone has a log. That actually seems like a good idea that I might try because nobody really understands how it is to go through this. My sister went through Accutane when she was younger but its nice to go through the struggle with someone. I'm glad I found this log. Have a great rest of your day.

Hey welcome to the site. It is a great site that has helped me physically and mentally. Currently I am on 80mg a day and I am only 21 days in. So far I had a crazy IB and recovering now. Good luck on here. I also have a log and it helps in the long run to see if it did help or not. welcome. :)

helllo.

i am on day 80 of accutane.

month 1 i took 40 MG daily.

month 2 i took 60 MG daily.

month 3 i am taking 40 MG daily.

i never really understood the whole alternating days thing, seems like you would get confused, but don't worry...a lot of people on this site are doing the same thing.

best of luck to you.

I do alternate doses. One day I do 80mg, the next day I do 40mg.

Best advice I can give you is take two different colored markers and mark your boxes. I do. So I have pink dots for days I take one pills and green ones the days I take two, you won't forget what you did yesterday that wy.

I put XX's and O's on all my pill boxes. Two X's today, one O tomorrow. Plus it gets rid of the pregnant lady on them. lol

Thanks so much for your input. Have a great day!!

I didn't know they had the 60 mg dosage. That's what my Derm is trying to accomplish by the alternating dosage.

I'm feeling much more confidant today! My skin doesn't look all flaky like it did yesterday. It seems like I lost like a layer of skin all in one night. Hope that's a good thing? Thanks for the info. What lotion do you use for your skin?
