URGENT Accutane Question

Ive been taking my daily dosage of 40mg at night all at once. Most people do take half the dosage in the morning then the rest at night. I aint able to see my derm till my course ends so I would like to know how yall take your accutane.

BTW I'm into my 4th week and the following week im upping my dosage to 80mg and I am thinking of doing the half morning/night routine now that my body has become used to handling 40mg at once.

When I was taking 40mg, I took it all at once. I'm at 60mg now and split my dose. Either is fine. It's total accumulated dose we're working toward here. It should be totally fine to go to 40 and 40 when you go up to 80.

Yes of course, it seems logical to me. Thanks for your input.

The end goal is to hit 150 mg / kg of body weight in accutane dosing. The dosing it takes you to get there is going to impact your side effects on a per day basis (ex. 80mg per day will probably have worse side effects than 40mg). The body of research done on accutane has been conducted using a 2x per day dosing protocal, which is why doctors typically recommend it. Personally, I don't think it matters.
