Accutane 40mg every other day?

Hi, I just received my Accutane capsules today but I was really surprised that they were 40mg and to me, it's pretty high since it's my first month. Should this be okay?
 I'm 18, 4'11.5" and about 87lbs with mildy severe acne. Thanks!

Depends on your derm, I've read about people taking 1mg/kg a day, just like your case (or every other day) and derms that prescribe 20mg/daily for someone like me, weighing 62kg. The recommended dosage is between 0.5-1mg/kg, so you're fine.
