is my dose to high to start out?

hi im new here, i just started accutane 4 days ago, but i was wondering, my derm started me out at 60 miligrams a day, and i have been reading your guys threads and i havent really seen any people start out like that, maybe im missing it?(wow that was a really bad run on sentence :wink )
anyways ya im a girl and im 5’7 and 140lbs…..i dont consider that over weight or anything so i wouldnt think my dose would be that high i dunno what do u guys think?

  1. Yes 60mg is okay start for you at your height. I do recomend you that once 60mg has enough of that try to lower the dosage. Like I took 60mg for like a month, then the side effects were too rough so I dropped down to 40mg for the next two months and then last 4 month I did 20 mg. My doctor plan was going to be on 60mg like for 6 months and I’m so glad I decided to drop on my own because should I been 60mg all the way I would have been crippled now with permanent accutane side effects.
