So I finally got my prescription for Accutane, but i'm worried if it's really gona work.

My weight is 220 pounds, almost 100 kg (a lot, i knw) and what the doctor wants to do, is put me on 40 mg/day for 7 months.

Do you think this will work?

Please let me know what you think if you have some experience..

Thank you =)

40mg a day is a nice, safe dosage. You'll have fewer side effects, including fewer adverse effects on your liver! The course seems to be long enough to improve your cumulative total as well. Many many people have had good effect with 20, 30, 40 a day.

You'll still want to be on top of the potential side effects. Read the pinned posts at the top of this forum. Get your moisturizer ready and lip balm. Petroleum jelly is a great lip balm. Drink plenty of water to maintain hydration. Treat your liver gently. http://www.hepfi.org/living/liv_caring.html
