Im on 60mg of accutane, ive heard about people who have bad acne and are only on 20mg. Just wondering as my acne wasnt severe, i had a few red marks and sometimes acne that would come back after a few weeks, am i on a stronger dose so the acne will go away quicker? or does it not work like that?

Well doctor's prescribe dosage based on your body weight I believe, not necessarily on the severity. May I ask how much you weigh? Because 60mg is a lot for most women.

my acne wasn't horrible and i was on 60mg for a couple months. it all has to do with ur accumlated dose and ur weight. the people who take 20mg might take it for longer than 6 months. while someone like u might take 60mg but for a shorter amount of time. it adds up to the same amount.

i weigh 124 and im on 60 as well, i started out with 40 for the first month and my skin was purging like no other, then on month 2 i went on 60 and after a week of being on 60 it cleared up almost completely and i havent had any side effects. my acne wasnt severe either, it was just persistant

stronger dose is good. Might as well especially if you don't want to go on a second round of accutane.
