Is The Dosage Of Accutane Related To The Potential Side Effects?

Recommended Posts

Just a quick thought, for instance if someone were on 10mg or 20mg a day would the chances of side effects and long term side effects be decreased in comparison to those on 60mg and above per day?

Or is it just related to the cumulative dose you take?

Your medication related side effects would be less while you are taking the medication on a lower dose. People often lower their doses if the side effects become unreasonable. I do not know if there is any relation to permanent side effects, but I will be interested to see if anyone has any knowledge about this.

Yeah I thought the medication-related would be less but its the long term im most concerned/interested about.

Im seeing my dermatologist next week so I guess I'll be asking then.
