Whats my top dosage

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I recently started accutane and completed my first month at 20mg, for my second month I’m at 30mg (I had to ask my derm about upping this dosage as she was about to fill out 20mg on the prescription) 

My derm said ill be on the medicine for 6 in the Hut I’m worried I won’t reach a high enough dosage, I’m not sure if she will Increase me next month unless I ask again (which I will)

My weight is 53kg/117 pounds so could someone please inform me of what dosage I should reach? And what amount I should aim to be on each month?

this would be really appreciated thank you in advance!

Minimum cumulative dose would be 120mg/kg, and 150mg/kg is considered on the max.

So if your weight is 53kg * 120mg = 6360 minimum, 53 * 150 = 7950 maximum.

If you take 40mg for 6 months you will reach 7200mg, that would be perfect for your weight, but depends of your type and acne situation.
