What is the average accuatane dosage for me?

Recommended Posts

Hey there...it all depends on several things....mainly 1) severity of acne 2) severity of side effects 3) duration of therapy...

But the main tenent to remember is that throughout the treatment, you should be getting a total of AT LEAST 120 mg/kg ...so in your case 8182 mg TOTAL.....

The recommended daily dosage is 0.5 mg/kg/day - 1.0 mg/kg/day....(2 for severe acne esp. truncal acne)

Usually, you start at the lowest dose to avoid side effects, and then you move up...

Im predicting you'll get a daily dose of 34 - 68 mg/day.....but in my opinion...I'd opt for the lowest dose possible, and then move yourself up....you get less side effects that way....

I always advice to use low dossage and you will not have any side effects ( except for dry lips) . 20mg-30 per day will be great . And remember the results are not going to happen in one night .
