  1. Hi all, I am halfway through my projected course of Accutane (3 out of 6 months) and I'm wondering if my cumulative dosage should be enough for remission. I know everyone is different and no one can truly predict that, but I still want to have a good shot at it! I've read several times that 120mg/kg is the "magic" number, and I'm on course for about 105mg/kg by the end. (I'm 115-120 lbs and my monthly doses have been/will be 20-30-30-40-40-30.)

  5. Hi! I am just starting Accutane (almost 2 weeks in) and trying to figure this out as well. My skin isn't very dry yet, but in preparation I have started mixing a little bit of my foundation (BareMinerals!) in with my moisturizer/sunscreen to make it a tinted moisturizer rather than a powder. I like this method because BareMinerals has never made me break out or irritated my skin, and a lof of tinted moisturizers are loaded with ingredients I don't want!
