A question about cumulative dosage?! Please answer =)

Recommended Posts

What's the amount that I need to accumulate?

I'm 52kg and have been taking Claravis 80mg/daily for 146 days.

I was not able to finish my 5th month due to hair loss(I stopped taking it myself) and I still had another month to go which would of been my 6 month.

I'm still breaking out thats why my derm prescribed a 6month. Would I be okay with what I've taken so far? I'm scared to keep taking accutane..

Any advice thanks=)

For your weight, you should have taken at least 6200 mg to 7800 mg of Accutane in total (120-150 mg/kg), and you took 11680 mg (225 mg/kg).

Some people continue clearing even after their course has finished, partly because the drug stays in your system for 3-4 weeks after you stop taking it.
