Doctor Putting Me on 120mg Once a Week Instead of 20mg Daily Isotretinoin (Accutane)
History is I've been on three full (60-120mg daily) courses of Accutane. Dr's taking me from the 20mg daily of Accutane for the past 2 months. My last day at 20mg daily was yesterday (Th., Dec. 8, 2011). Dr stopped me until this Wed. Dr said Wed. & each Wed. after take 120mg once weekly. 120mg divided by 7 days of wk is 17.14mg. About the same as 17.14mg daily? He's doing for 1 mo. & repeat each mo. after, 100mg(14.28mg daily), 80mg(11.42mg daily). Never heard this before. Does this sound ok?
I often have people continue on a weekly course
