Alright, so I'm between 38-40kgs, and currently I am taking 20mg of Oratane per day.

According to the threads I've read here, I should be on 40mg. Now, I'm not sure if I should trust my dermatologist or if I should request that maybe my dosage get put up? I want this treatment to be as effective as possible and I'm starting to worry that maybe it won't be?

Or I'm just being a girl and stressing for nothing. Lol.

You're being a girl but I'll forgive you as you're a fellow Australian ;)

A dose of 0.5 mg/kg/day - 1.0 mg/kg/day is standard, so for you that's 20 mg/day - 40 mg/day.

Trust your derm.

I thought as much. Haha. I think I've been reading too many posts on here of people who think they're experts and getting ideas in my head.

My dermatologist may even up my dose anyway. Who knows.
