Re: Low dose Accutane (20mg/day)
this raises a good point... i've been wondering about the affects of a low accutane dosage myself
accutane definitely worked for me at 40mg a day a few years back.. and i've been thinking about using it again, now that mild cystic acne has returned. but i'm more concerned about some of the side-effects this time around - namely photosensitivity to sunlight, chapped lips and dry skin. not that i had terrible experiences with those on my previous dosage but i don't think it would be worth it to have problems with those, considering that my skin now looks much better.
would a lower dosage... say, 20mg or even 10mg a day do the trick with acne but also significantly lessen the severity of the side effects? any thoughts?
