accutane dosing

I'm on 60 mg a day for five months. I'm 5'7" woman and fluctuate between 145-160 lbs. Does this sound like a good dose for my weight?


According to this calculator, yes, it's enough. Download and fill in your info to see for yourself.

I am 5'6 and went between 140-150 lbs throughout my course (132 after a bout of pneumonia, woohoo!) and I was also on 60 mgs. Had very little side effects. I wish you the same!

I had dry lips/dry skin and body aches esp. in my lower back and hips. Technically I am not finished with my course, I have done about 5 months and 1 week. I recently took a one week break while I am on antibiotics to get over pneumonia, and I was SHOCKED how quickly my side effects faded away. Esp. being sick with pneumonia, I had expected to feel very achy, but I feel fantastic. There is hope. :)
