how long is your couse?

Recommended Posts

my course was only supposed to be 5 months at 80 mgs a day, but I am on my 7th month now b/c my face was still breaking out a few days ago. the dosage is lower - 40 mgs one day and 80 the next. I haven't had any bad side affects, the main thing just being TMJ in my jaw.. but it is bearable. I was just curious as to how long everyone is going to be on the medicine?

my course is scheduled to be 6 months long w/ 60 mgs/ day, which i think is what your derm is doing w/ the 40/80 every other day dosing. i feel like it's a little high of a dose for that long, but i haven't started yet, so i'll wait to pass judgement.

hope the jaw pain goes away for you!

You might have hormonal acne, id look into spironolactone

My course was 5 months of 40mg for the first 2 an then 60mg the last 3... I cleared up my cystic acne in 2 weeks and have been clear for almost a year and 9 months now
