accutane program

Recommended Posts

I'm finally on accutane, 21 years old, 180 lbs, I take 2 40mg pills of Claravis a day. I'm on it for 10 days, then take 4 days off. Then see the doctor and get another 10 day supply. I've never gotten blood work. It seems the costs are really going to add up ($40 each refill). Is this a normal program?

Hmm its kinda wired. Why do you take a 4 days off after 10 days? Usually people get wupply for one month then see the derm to get the supply to the second month and so on. I also think that the blood work is very important because accutane can cause demage to the liver.

My program(Started 2 days ago) i take 2 pills a day,20+10 for a month then i do blood work and get a new supply for the next month. My derm will up my dosage to 60 next month.. Well good luck to you.
