I just came off accutane a few months ago and it worked wonders on my skin! But since then my eyes have stayed very dry and I've had trouble sleeping. Anyone else had this problem?

Also, more importantly, my sister just got put on accutane and her acne really isn't that bad. he started her on 40 mg twice a day. She weighs maybe 130 lbs. Does that seem like a very high dosage to any of you?

Dosage all depends on how your body handles it. I'm about 138lbs and got terrible side effects when I took 40mg a day so dropped down to 40mg every other day. But at the same time, there are girls that are much smaller and younger than me that can handle 80mg a day no problem. Just make sure she watches out for side effects....if she starts to have them, call your derm and ask for a lower dose or every other day.
