What you need is to get a specific mg of the medication into your system to combat the acne. It doesn't really matter whether you are on 20, 40, 60 mg etc. It matters the overall total dosage of the medication. So if you're on 60mg a day, you will be on it for a shorter amount of time that someone in an environment where they can only be on 20 or 40mg a day. Your doctor knows the proper amount you need to take.
