Accutane / Absorica Dosage Advice (12,000 Mg Total Dosage. Too Much!?)

Recommended Posts


I wanted to know everyones' opinion and thought on my accutane total target dosage. I'm about 130-135ish pounds (60kg) and about 5'7". I will be finishing my 8th box of accutane (absorica version) with 30 pills/box of 40mg pill for a total of 9600mg over the past 5 months. That comes out to about 160mg/kg. From what I've heard/ read online I should be done.

My dermatologist just prescribed me another 2 boxes for a grand total of 12,000 mg over my accutane course which works out 200mg/kg-- if I did all my math correctly. I asked her if that was too much but she told me that fine and not to worry. She told me the more I take the better chances it won't come back. I do very much respect my dermatologist and do trust her judgement but just wanted to hear your thoughts.
