Did you have to gradually increase dosage?

I want to keep my dose low to prevent side effects. I definitely want a lower starting dose. 30mg twice a day is 1mg per kg of my weight per day. The lowest recommended for my weight of 59kg/130lbs is half of that. My acne is only moderate, but resistant to other treatments.

Can my starting dose be my maximum dose for the whole course? Or do I have to gradually increase it?

Will ask the doc on Monday, but what has worked for you?

Yeah I started on 70mgs which I thought was high when I started, I'm still on it and glad because I think it means its quicker to work and less likely to come bak
