Post Accutane

I'm almost at the end of my first month and i am taking 20mg/day. My face is just starting to peel but it isnt very dry yet. I still get breakouts on my chin but thats forhead or cheeks. I was just wondering if i should ask my doctor to bump my dose up to 40mg at the end of the first month?? Thanks in advance!

I guess it does not hurt to ask your derm to up your dosage...especially if you are concerned if the accutane is working or not.
Good luck.

bump that **** up to 80mg... how much do you weigh? I am 5'7" 170, so 80mg/day was good for me.

Anyways, I never "broke out" during, or after accutane, so maybe that's a sign to up the dosage if you're breaking out.

But damn did that stuff work! My face is smooth as a baby's butt now... The only thing I have left is a few fading red marks.

Good luck

your doctor will likely bump up your dosage, but it's his decision. it would seem that you're doing pretty well for only 20 mg/day.
