Accutane round two question

Recommended Posts

I've heard of some people on here taking really low doses of Accutane, like 10mg to 20mg a day. I've been on 80mg a day (which was too much maybe), but it did help clear me up a lot. I went from having cysts and big whiteheads to little red pimples, and less often. Anyways, Im wondering how does the doc precribes these low doses? Can you get Tane in 20mg pills? Or do you take one pill every second day?

I'm on 20 mg a day right now. I could be on 60 mg a day , but I have Inflammatory Bowel Disease, so my dermatologist wanted to be careful and start slowly with it. Next time I see him (Tuesday), he will probably up my dose to 40 mg, because I haven't had any real problems. ::Knocks on wood.::
