Post Alternating Accutane Dosage.

Whats up people,

My derm just upped my dosage to 60mg a day. But instead of having me take one 20mg pill and another 40 mg pill, she wants me to take 40 mg one day and 80mg another day. What is the reasoning behind this? (The only thing I can think of is savings).

there is no proven method of taking what amount each time.. so long as over a certain period say 6 months you do have the same amount of accutane gone thru your body.

My Signature

March.02 - July 2002:- 40mg Accutane

13 Dec 02 - Current :- Started 10mg Accutane per day bought off internet privately and i am 95% clear... just red marks to fade.. no more breakouts. i may get just a small red bump every now and then
