Increasing your dose

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I started Accutane on 60mg/day exactly 32 days ago. I haven't (knock on a tree) experienced an initial breakout yet. I actually only have 2 pimples right now, few red marks/scabs. I was wondering if anyone knows if maybe increasing my dose to 80mg could cause the breakout to occur? Thanks a lot, good luck to all!

Hey, that's great that you haven't had the dreaded inital breakout!! :dance: :dance: Some people actually never have one although I have heard that increasing the dosage can cause one. Let's just hope that doesn't happen to you!! Good Luck! :)

Does anyone know if increasing your dosage can/will always lead to a breakout?

Shannon, I was very nervous about going up....so I did 40 mgs one day and then 80 mgs the next and alternated like that for a week and then went all the way to 80 mgs with no major breakout.....

But I know some people did experience a break out from the doseage increase, but it seems to me that most did not.....I just continued going at the pace I was at....a few pimples here and there, but no explosion.
