Accutane Calculations

I'm sorta confused about the whole 125mg/kg calculations. My derm wanted to follow by that rule so I'd stay clear for a long time.

Here's my info:

- I weigh 115pds

- Will be doing 6 months course

- 40mg for the 1st month

- 60mg for the remaining 5 months

Will I hit the 125mg/kg?????

Will I hit the 125mg/kg?????

You'll hit it by a long shot:

115 lbs. is about 52 kg.

40 mg/day * 30 days + 60 mg/day * 150 days = 10200 mg

10200 mg / 52 kg = 196 mg/kg

Yeah, I'm going to end up having taken 204/mg/kg/day at the end of my course. Hopefully, that'll be enough.
