Accutane: Every other day?

Recommended Posts

Is there any one out there that is taking a 40mg dosage every other day like me? So far as I can see most people if not all take 1 or 2 a day everyday. I weight 130lbs and am 5'6" and I would say I have pretty bad acne. My treatment would last 4 months at this rate. I just want to see if this is going to allow me to get the most of my treatment.

It's essentially a 20mg a day dose, but you are saving money by taking a single 40mg pill every other day instead of a 20 mg daily. There's nothing wrong with dosing this way - each doctor has their own dosing preferences. Although 4 months is unlikely to be long enough at that dosage.

Well this seems to be what is called microdosing. Is microdosing for me though? I'd say my acne is pretty damn bad.

i thought you were supposed to keep dosage steady to keep levels of accutane in your body.

no?
