I still see a bit oil

Finishing up month 3 of tane, on 60mg, I could handle up to 80mg though. I don't have dry skin I do see there is some people in here that don't get dry skin, but don't have oily skin either. Me I just have normal skin but after about 8-10 hours, on my forehead and my nose area feels slightly oily but just very little. Is this normal, this has been the same also when I was on a lower dose. I doubt 80mg will do a difference. But since getting upped to 60mg, I have noticed just a bit dryness on my chin and upper lip and that's it. I have been clearing this month though, looking a good deal better, but I'm worried since my skin gets slighty oily, that once I get off tane, I'll go into a relapse :confused:

But the funny thing is those places were I see the little oil I don't experience any outbreaks and it's uncommon for me to get them over those places, all I have is blackheads there but the worst part is gone and I hardly ever see new ones there.

Your dosage should depend on your weight. Typically, a 60 mg/day dose would be right for someone who weighs about 60kg (132 pounds). If you weigh significantly more, maybe you should talk to your derm about increasing the dosage.

Hmmmm...I don't think you have to be on the dose propertional to your weight throughout the whole course though. But not even a tiny bit of oil should exist on accutane, even what I'm experiencing? When I was on a lower dose, the same thing was happening, upping to 60mg, still hasn't increased drying, I doubt 80mg won't either, maybe 100mg a day will but that's too high!
