U weigh 70 KG (weight divided by .4) so you multiply 70 times 120 if you have moderate acne, or 70 times 150 if you have severe acne. That is the amount of accutane you should take and around that number you should see dramatic improvement.

Severe acne so that means i should have taken over 10,000 mg and in the 5 months ive been on it ive only taken 2,000 lol
