10mg for 6 months or 20mg for 3 months?

Hi,

I will start taking accutane by the weekend. However, I am unsecure whether I should use 20mg a day for 3 months, og 10mg for 6 months. I don`t have very much acne. I have between 3 and 7 spots.

Does anyone here have a idea of what is smartest?

Thanks

go 20mg for 3 months to get it over with quicker

Well, if that is the logic, shouldn`t I be popping all the pills in one day?

I would really appreciate some reasoning.

Don't use accutane for 3 zits.

If you do, 20mg for 3 months because it is quicker.

I made up my mind before I came in here, so it is really too late to say I shouldn't use it. I know the risks, and I am willing to take it if I can be acne free without any worries. I really hate the fact that I have to watch whatever I eat and drink, care about my stress levels (which worsens if I have acne) and also keeping a good sleep regimen.

Okay, if no one has any input, I guess I will do that. Thanks
