What is the 120 mg/kg rule?

Recommended Posts

Im totally confused on how Accutane works, and what the proper dosage should be. Im jumping the gun right now- because I dont even have a prescription, but lately ive been fascinated with the damn pill and feel the need to be schooled on it. Can someone dumb it down for me? Thanks a bunch!

The Absolute basics of it ... is The amount of over-all tane in your body needed.

So according to your weight you need soo much tane. Personally i dont know the rule EXACTLY, but its not really THAT important lol. Basically a heavier person in the end has to have alot more tane in their body for it to cause remission to the acne than a lighter person. However there are exceptions to this basic rule! if you still get acne then you can go an extra month n stuff.... Its all based on mathematical and statistical doses calibrated for each person individually.

I hope that helps somewhat!

Thank you for the explanation! It makes more sense now.. But by overall tane in the body for it to go into remission.. Do you mean that the Accutane stays in your body? I heard that it is gone within a month or so... Theres so much to learn about this drug.

I think this should probably be explained in Rossignol's FAQs, if it's not already. It seems to be asked a lot now.
