Do You Think The Doctor Would Do This?

Recommended Posts

Do you guys think my doctor if I asked would prescribe me a low dose of accutane? I have moderate acne. It isn't severe but it certainly isn't mild. Has your doctor/derm ever prescribed you a low dose of accutane and is this even possible/aloud?

Hi. I'm a Malaysian, and I don't know where you're from, and I don't know if this is applicable to you.. I was on doxycycline 100mg OD, for 3 months.. and I decided that it's not working (it was, but I guess my acne developed resistance to it). I asked my derm for low dose Accutane, and he agreed to prescribe Accutane 10 mg OD for me.. I took it for 4 months, and since it's low dose, I barely experience side effects, aside from the dryness. So, it was possible for me here in Malaysia, but I don't know how the policy is elsewhere.
