High dosis

Dear everybody that is willing to read and help 🙂 ,

2 months ago I went to the dermatoligic and asked wether I could get roaccutane. she agreed and told me to take 2 pills a day.

A day later I had the medicines and I started to take 2 pills every morning.

6 weeks after I started I visited the lady for a check and I asked wether I could get a higher dosis, 3 pills. she asked about how it felt and if I thought it good. I did so I was alowed to take 3.

I had some pills left so I started with those 3 a day. A few days later I had the medicines, but 10mg instead of the 20mg I took befor… I went back to the pharma and asked about it. she said that I could take 6 10mg pills of that is what the docter said.

Some days later it turned out that I was supposed to take 2 times 10mg in the bigging, not 20.. and later 30mg, not 60..

That means that I have been taking double the dosis for 6 weeks, and again double (now 60mg) for a week.

Does anybody have this experience? could this be a serious problem? Any advice?

Thanks 🙂

  1. How much do you weigh?

    Your weight makes a big difference.

    The max dosage recommended is 2 MG for every 2.2 pounds.

    I weigh about 180lbs and I was on 80mg/day.

    The normal dosage range is 0.5-1.0 MG per 2.2lbs of body weight.

    Take your weight and divide it by 2.2lbs. Then multiply that by 2. If that number is higher or about the same as the max you were taking per day, then you’re probably fine.

    For example.

    180lbs / 2.2 lbs = 81.82 x 2MG = 163.64 MAX MG Per Day For Me

    I was on 80mg which is near the top of the "normal" dosage range.
