I'm 160 lbs and I've been on Accutane for a week now. Currently 40mg/day. Usually if you notice serious sideeffects they'll take down the dose.

The derm. told me to take 40 for the first month and then see if it needs any adjustments. cool.gif

I actually got the pills today but I will not start to take them already. I have to decide if I take them before I go in vacation (27 aug. – 3 sep.) or after, I don’t want to be a B… :silenced: during this time …lol. :mrgreen:
