Does it matter how often I take the pill?

Recommended Posts

I am currently taking 40 mg in the morning and 60 mg at night and this is kinda inconvienent, so is there any difference in me just taking 100 mg at night?

i should add though that while my acne is only moderate, after 3 months i was still getting pimples (though they were small and not cystic) and my skin wasnt dry at all so my doctor decided to up the dosage..Even with 100mg a day, i still only have dry lips....go figgur

Does anyone know the answer to my question?

I think it's better to break up the dosage just cuz it's easier on your liver. Secondly, you should be taking your morning and evening dosages with relatively large meals that contain a normal amount of fat. That is, don't have your morning dosage with just an apple. Have it with a good size breakfast and have your evening dosage with dinner. I hope that helps. I'll be starting accutane soon...good luck.
