Should I Take Accutane Every Other Day?

Recommended Posts

I was having some problems, so I went to my family doctor and he told me stop taking it for 1 week so I did and my problems (chest pain, derm thinks its just chest muscles) decreased but did not leave completely, so my doctor said if it did not completely go away to keep taking it because its prob not accutane. So I went to my derm and he said break the pill in half until you are completely sure its not accutane (booked a test for Feb 6th... kinda far away). Well I can't break the pill in half, don't know why my derm said this, so should I take it every other day? Is it the same as taking half everyday??

Your derm told you to break a liquid capsule in half... well there's a new one... if your derm doesn't know what they're prescribing I'd be a bit concerned. What dose are you on at the moment?

I am supposed to break a 40mg capsule in half, so suppsedly 20 a day.

Well, in that case, you could just be taking 20mg a day. They come in 10, 20 and 40mg variants if I'm not mistaken, I take one 20mg pill a day.
