Depends on your derm, but it's usually daily, and in a 20 mg pill once a day, or a 40 mg pill once a day, OR a 40 and a 40, at different times of the day. And you're supposed to do it with meals or while drinking milk.

I take 80 mgs. (2 40 mg pills) and my derm told me if my stomach could handle it, I could take them at the same time. I have had no problems taking 80 at once and take it with supper since it is my biggest meal.

I was wondering something as well, when you say you take it with a meal, that means on a full stomach right? or do you take it halfway through your meal? I always take it after. Usually after my breakfast with water or soy milk. And then on the days I take 2 pills (every Mon, Wed, & Fri), I take one after breakfast and one after dinner.

You are supposed to take it twice a day with a fatty meal. It even says so on the instructions. Taking it 2x a day ensures even levels in the blood.
