Need some advice

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I've just recently started isotretinoin that I've been prescribed for 3 months, now I'm only starting on 40mg and my derm didn't say anything about upping my dose and I don't see him until 3 months time, now I know from what I've read I won't reach the cumulative dosage for my weight. 

Should i i up my dosage myself if I can get some more isotretinoin to 60mg and then see what the derm says when I have a check up as no doubt in 3 months he'll only probably up my dose anyway is I'm 60kg and only taking 40mg. Or dose the cumulative dose not mean much ?

i would make an earlier appointment but as I'm in the uk using the NHS it's near enough impossible to get in contact with the dermatologist themself, you speak with there secretary 
i might try phoning them to see about upping my dose but thought I'd ask here first as they are currently having a week off apparently.
