hi everyone...i was wondering if anyone had success with taking 40mg/day through an entire accutane treatment? ive been on accutane for 2 1/2 months now on 40mg/day...and im think my derm will just keep me on that dosage..at the beginning of treatment i weighed 105lbs and now i think i am between 110-113lbs...since i gained a bit of weight is it necessary to up my dosage? im just wondering if i will see dramatic results on 40mg/day throughout my entire course? any feeedback would be great
hmmmm. I am a 25 year old male and I weight about 190. I was on accutane 3 different times and all 3 times it cleared me right up. close to (if not 100%) I was on 80 mg a day. My opinion, I think you are fine. My acne is all gone on my chest, back, and back of neck but I still take antibitoics and tazorac. My advice is always ask your derm and see what they think of your weight increase. If they won't up the disage then I reccomend losing the 10 or so pounds youve gained.
I have been through 2 courses of Accutane treatment and both times my dose was 40 mg/day. I don't think your weight gain is enough to increase the dose. The first time I took it my weight was around 110lbs and the second time it was around 135lbs.
I hope Accutane works as well for you as it did for me! Good Luck!
Hi, I weighed 113-115 when on accutane and went up to 80mg for the last 2 months, Started at 20mg, then 40, 60 and 80. It cleared me up very well. So I think your alright, and it is still early, so mybe he/she will up the dosage Hope that helped
Hey I just started on accutane like a few weeks ago now, and my facial acne has completely cleared up, but my body acne seems to be more stubborn. Did anyone else notice this, and if you did how long until it starts to deplete my body acne? One more question, it says we can't drink while taking it, did you guys take this seriously??
