Hello, I am 21 years old 6’1″ and 165 pounds and am on my 6th day of Accutane. I have mild acne and my brother is 26 and has moderate to severe acne. My derm has prescribed me with a 6 month package at 10mg of Accutane Roche 10 a day. I have been searching online and been reading alot of diary’s and fourum posts. I have noticed that everyone is taking either 40mg a day or 40mg and 20mg a day and beyond that. At the end of the term their skin is perfect they say. My concern is did my doctor prescribe me with enough mg/day. I just want to know if the next 6 months are going to be a waste of time or should I go back to my derm and ask for a higher dose. In canada you can only get 10mg or 40mg pills. If anyone has a story about them taking only 10mg a day please tell me or even give me a link to a post on this site or another. Thanks for your help.
