Is my Accutane Dose Safe?
I am 42 yo cauc. female with moderate hormonal acne flares and was on Accutane (Claravis actually) 6 months ago at 40 mg one day then 80 mg the next. I did not tolerate it well after the first month (hair falling out in clumps, skin tearing with minor bumps, excessive dryness and increased cholesterol).
My dermatologist said to try 10 mg once a day or 3-4 times a week or 40 mg once a week. Which is safer/effective and how long would you suggest to continue?
