Initial Accutane Dose?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, quick question...

What was everyones inital dose when they went on accutane? Im wondering because i weight about 185 pounds and ive initially been put on 40mg a day, one pill at dinner....im wondering because this seems low compared to alot of other peoples dose that are about my weight. Are many people initially perscribed a low dose for say the first month, and then had there dose increased? I trust my derm knowns what hes doing but i was just curious

Also, he never said anything about stopping my nighttime and daytime topicals...but alot of people including a pharmacist say dont use them.

oh bythe way i have moderate acne

Thanks guys

the low initial dose is to let your derm know how your body is reacting to the isotretoinen.. once your blood test results are in and your in for your next appointment.. he should bump you up to either 60mg or 80mg.. =]
