Accutane MG to KG

Guest Kaelynd

I've heard people saying that 1.5mg per kg is the best rate for not relapsing

I am on 60 mg, and I weigh about 59 kg, which is only about 1mg per kg.

Does this mean I will be more likely to relapse?

Going by the 1.5mg per kg thing, apparently I could be on almost 90 mg.

It doesn't have to do much with your daily ratio. Cumulative dosage matters.

You are totally ok with 1mg/1kg/1day.

I dont know what is more important between daily dose and cumulative dose, but I understand that many doctors actually prescribe between 0.5 mg and 1.0mg per kg. Higher doses may be reserved for people whose acne is particularly severe and who can tolerate the higher doses. Based on what you have said though your dosage of 1mg/kg a day sounds about right.
