New accutane user looking for tips

Recommended Posts

I just took my first pill today and am scheduled to be on it for 6 months. I take 40mg the first month, alternate 40mg one day and 80mg the next for the second, and 80 mg for the rest of the treatment. She also prescribed me that generic of keflex, something like cephalexin or something like that because she said it really takes accutane about 2-3 months for it to start kicking in.

I am a 17 year old male 130lb or 60kg, I tried figuring up my total dosage that I would be taking in the end...and I came up with like 210mg/kg . Does that sound right? Isnt the recommendation like 125mg/kg or something?

Three of my cousins, my mom, and one of our hired men have all taken accutane and it worked for them so that gives me hope. One of my other cousins have just started taking it too and my OTHER cousin will probably start soon. [man I have alot of cousins, well just alot that have had acne troubles].

Well, if anybody has any words of advice or tips, I would be glad to hear them and heres to the end of my acne!
