accutane- prescribing questions

Recommended Posts

I am about to start accutane this week and have a few questions...

Is there any quality difference between name brand accutane and generic brand?

What is the approx. mg per pound or kg of body weight?

No difference between the two, average is 1 mg/kg

You're supposed to take it twice a day though (so, if you weigh 175 lbs, or 80kg, you would take 40mg twice a day)
