Cumulative Dose

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I was just wondering if anyone had any experience/information about reaching the cumulative dose on a low dose course...

I did a regular course 4 years ago, well sort of, 30mg a day for 8 months, i weighed 60kg. it woked great, i barely had any side effects and i stayed clear for a year or 2 after. i have since started breaking out, to a lesser extent but still getting cysts now and again, so im back on tane.

im now 24 and my derm has said i can either take 40mg a day for 5-6 months depending on how things go. or go for 20mg a day for double the time. i think id rather do the lower dose, avoid side effects and stay on a little longer as my last corse was all pretty plain sailing.

i just wondered if i can achieve the same in terms of long term remission with a low dose over a longer period of time, as oppossed to a regular course. as long as i reach my cumulative dose before stopping will it still be as effective?

Really appreciate any ideas! thanks guys
