: I AM FROM THE US AS WELL. BEFORE I COULD BEGIN ACCUTANE MY DERMA MADE ME READ SEVERAL PAPERS EXPLAINING THE SIDE EFFECTS OF ACCUTANE. AND THEN HE ALSO DISCUSSED IT WITH ME IN THE OFFICE. I STARTED WITH A 40MG DOSE OF ACCUTANE AND AFTER A MONTH WENT TO TWO 20MG DOSES. AS FAR AS WHEN YOU TAKE IT IS COMPLETELY UP TO YOU.

Thanks Jess, I will begin accutane this coming week and I feel assure that this is the right dosing for me. How far are you in the treatment and has it been a success? Thanks again for responding.

: : : Hmmm i`ve noticed this alot, alot of people here are using the board do get dosage info n` stuff and also saying that is costs you to get accutane, is everyone here from the US or something?

: : : I live in the UK and i`ve been on accutane for 2 weeks, it was totally free to get and everything that could possibly have been explained to me was explained before i decided to take it and the only thing i had to pay for was the prescription which was £6 or around $4.

: : Yes, I am from the US. My doctor does not sit down with me more than 5 minutes to explain the regimen clearly. I read up on Accutane and there it said that it is usually twice daily. I wish it didn't cost so much, but luckily I have insurance which paid for it.
