Poll: Any 3rd coursers or even 2nd coursers

Recommended Posts

How long were you on accutane, what dose, what is your weight, and what number course is it for you?

I am currently on my 3rd course of Accutane I've been taking 80mg a day(40mg twice a day) for 34 days...and continuing.

I am 20/M/67kg

I only get a few small pimples on my face...my trouble area is my neck where I get a few cysts under the jaw line and on the back of my neck at a time before accutane.

I am hoping since it is my 3rd course I will be on it shorter...I could do 3 months and be off around Aug 15th in time to go back to College and drink and go to the pool.

Any thoughts on 3rd course, high dose, finishing in 3 months???

I'm 142 lbs.

Course 1: Roughly 5-6 months, 40 mg/day

Course 2: 4.5 months, 60 mg/day

I'm finishing up my second course in just over a week. I'm mostly clear, but the red marks and scarring are much more of an issue than they were for the first course.

I think I'm tolerating the second course better than the first one, namely because I found that Aquaphor deals with the dry lips problem exceptionally well. I wish I had discovered that during my first course.

Also, this time around I actually make it a point to moisturize daily, which probably helps a lot as well.

hmmm...

now I'm starting to think that...

if you go on a higher cum. dosage/higher daily dosage for a longer period of time,

the chance of a 'relapse' is lower...hmmm

JTT85,

I weigh a few kg less than you,

and I'm on 100mg a day,

just curious if you're happy with the low dose course?

:)
