If I weigh..

Recommended Posts

Well, typical dosage is 125mg/kg.

105 pounds = 47.6271988 kilograms

125mg x 47.6kg = 5950mg total dose

5950mg / 40mg daily dose = 148.75 days total

149 days total / 30 days per month = 4.96 months

So, according to my (not infallible) calculations, your answer is roughly five months on 40mg. :)

I don't think they have 30mg pills. I could be wrong but I think there's only 40mg and 10mg sizes.

My derm put me on 40mg. I was just asking because they never weighed me or anything, they just gave that to me.
