My overall dosage is too high it seems with 192mg/kg

Recommended Posts

1. Male / 220lbs / 6'3" with a 6 month course

2. 1st two months = 80mg a day (two 40mg pills)

3. 3rd and 4th (current) months = 120mg a day (three 40mg pills)

Assuming my dosage does not change for the remaining 5th and 6th months, I'm clearly over the recommended range of 120mg-150mg / kg.

My calculations:

220lbs = 100kg

80mg x 60 days (1st two months ) = 4,800mg

120mg x 120 days (remaining four months) = 14,400mg

14,400 + 4800 = 19,200mg total

19200mg / 100kg = 192mg/kg :think:

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

It' seems like a lot. Perhaps it's because of the condition of your acne.

If you have severe acne, than thats pretty understandable.

besides, your super tall,and weight 220lb.

You are a pretty big person, so it will take more then average to allow the accutane to spread evenly throughout your body, and mainly face.

I have moderate acne on my face and light acne on my chest, back, and shoulders.

My derm said the same thing about my size. But even then, it seems my dosage is a bit too high but then again I'm no doctor. My bloodwork has always come out well.

My main concern for the high dosage is side effects. Luckily so far, I only have chapped lips. I just hope it doesn't worsen beyond this.

High dose low dose the side effects always hit only a certain ammount of people, theres some people that did 120mg for like 6 months and got just chapped lips, theres some that did 20mg for like 1 month and got bad hair loss ect, it pretty much depends on the person with the bad side effects(not the dry skin and minor joint pain stuff)

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm 6'4, 220lbs and was on 80>80>90>120 and my last month will be 120 as well. The only consistent side effect I've had was chapped lips.

I was worried in the beginning when I was put on 80 but the doc gave me the same response, that it was because of my weight and height.
