Should i start 40mg or take 20 for a week????

Recommended Posts


i went to a derm. she said i needed accutane. take 20mg for a week and then 40.

i didn't like her tho, she just wasen't very nice.

So i went to another derm and she put me on antibiotics for the first 3 weeks of tane to try stop inital breakout. but she didn't say whether or not i should start at 20mg.

Should i do 20 for a week, or just do 40???

remembering i have school in 3 weeks, trying to get as clear as possinble before then.

I'd start with the lower dose first personally. It will lessen your chance of initial breakout, especially combined with the antibiotics (i hope they aren't in the -cyclin family). It should also ease you into the side effects a bit.
