Accutane question

Recommended Posts

Hey all ;)

Yesterday i was at the derm, and then i finally got my pills :D But of course i need this blood test first. But my question is. Is it normal to start on 20mg? And am i going higher with the mg later? But i really look forward to start. :) Hope some of u can help.

Moved to the Accutane Posts board.

I've seen lots of threads where people start out at around 20mgs, so it seems pretty normal. You'll have to ask your derm if the dosage is going to be increased, though.

You have to take into consideration your body height and weight. Plus if you have moderate/mild acne they tend to start individuals off at a lower dose. it usually is increased later. but it gives your body the chance to get used to having such a harsh product in it without spazzing. but you can always ask your derm. =]

best of luck!
