Plus I'm 20 years old, and I think at the end of December my healthcare is expired through my moms coverage (i dont live at home anymore). I'll take it twice a day as reccomended, but I'll be out of Accutane within a month! (I had to pay 60 dollars out of 250 for the medication). Hopefully all I get is chapped lips etc. I had a nose bleed this morning, but I'm prone to them, and I've got strep throat so everything is i
  7. Hi there! I just started Accutane about 4 days ago! I was on Minocycline but it was a waste of money and didn't do anything for my Acne. My doctor prescribed me to take Accutane twice a day (80mg). When I went to pick up my prescription my pharmascist was surprised as this is apparnetly a high dosage. She asked my body weight (im about 165 and am a male) and said that it still seemed high. She went and talked to my doctor and he said that he prescribed me 2 tablets a day because of my body weig
