Accutane dosage question

Recommended Posts

1) What are the likeleness chances of me getting another dreaded breakout due to the dosage increase? And how can I avoid this?

2) How should I take 3 x 20mg pills. One in the morning, afternoon and night. Or One in the morning and two in the evening. Or all 3 at the same time?

Anyone?

I just stepped up my dose from 40 to 60 like 4 days ago. Woke up this morning, damn wasn't looking to good. I'm starting my 3rd month so hopefully it will get better soon. I don't know if increasing dosage causes further breakouts, but if it does there isn't much you can do.

I have the same question. I have been on 40mg for one month and I haven't gotten a new zit in about a week so it has been working very well for me. I had very oily skin and it got pretty dry around week 2 and week 3 but after that my oil has started coming back. My oil isn't as bad as it was but it's annoying now that my face seems to be clearing up. I don't even have to use moisturizer in the morning... my face is that oily. I wanted to ask my derm to bump me up to 60mg a day to help dry me out some more. Mind you, I did not get a very big initial breakout if i did get anything at all, so I don't know if bumping up to 60 will cause a flare up since I haven't gotten a zit in a week.
