Why am I still getting large cysts after being on a high dosage of Accutane (60mg at 50kg) for 8 months and going on 9?
Possible: This is possible if you are female and have hormonal imbalance.
I weigh around 100 lbs. What's the highest dosage of Accutane that I'll have take. Currently on 40 mg after 30 mg first month.
Right dosage: Your weight about 45 kg, so 40 mg is about right.
Accutane, didn't miss dosage 1st month (30mg). Miss total six pills off/on throughout first 3 weeks of 2nd month (40 mg). Will this affect results?
No: Take with food for best result. Best results from taking each dose. The more doses you miss the more likely you will need to extend the total length of therapy. You do not give your weight. Probably you will soon be on 80mg a day. You will need to grease your lips.
This is one med: That should only be taken exactly as directed. Please don't take it upon yourself to make changes with Accutane (unless directed by your dermatologist).
Weight - dependent: The amount of Accutane dosing is based on weight -- typically 1 mg per kilogram.
For a woman that weighs ~ 100 lbs, what is the highest dosage of Accutane that will need to be taken?

Is my Accutane dosage enough? Been using for 4 months and am prescribed 100-60 mg. I weight 130 pounds.
1mg/kg/day: Accutane is dosed at 1mg/kg/day for 5 months.
On Accutane 10mg. Its day 2. skin got abit worst. Is an initial breakout occurs this early at such low dosage?
Not really: Your breakout is responding to issues prior to your first dose. You are very early to be trying to analyze any results. Take the medication as prescribed and continue the regiman your doctor put you on and hopefully you will start to improve. Acne is life long and it will take time to help clear it up. Acne can be triggered by lack of sleep, sun damage, stress, hormones, and picking.
Accutane low dosage for long term -20 mg weekly, has the same effect as 20 mg daily but with less side effects. Agree? Is check up needy in this case?
You should consult: With and be examined by your dermatologist prior to any dosage change
How large are Accutane capsules? I have trouble swallowing large pills and was wondering if I could ask for dosage in increments of 10mg capsules?
Yes: You can get smaller capsules such as 10 mg. You can also try crushing the capsules in peanut butter or apple sauce or yogurt to better swallow.
I have been on accutane 7 months. I was clear but now breaking out my doctor has increased my dosage to 40mg when will this start to kick in?
Varies: Different people metabolize drugs differently and their physiology varies due to their genetics. It may take 3-4 month before you see a dramatic improvement.

I had a hair transplant 7+ months ago. Can I begun a lore dosage regimen of accutane. I took accutsme several years ago. I had no side effects.
Acne treatment: If you concluded the proper course of Accutane recommended by your dermatologist, you shouldn't need Minocycline to treat cystic acne. However, if you're transitioning from one medication to another, follow up with your prescribing physician to ensure proper care and dosage based on your diagnosis and medical history.
How low?????: Long term benefit proportional to total dose. Full dose is more likely to provide something close to a cure. A low dose is better tolerated but would need to be used for a longer time for a more lasting effect. Sometimes you just need to take the edge off a severe exacerbation. Usual dose for average person is 80 mg daily for 20 weeks. Could use 10mg daily for a year or more. With low dose, expect
