What's the difference in taking Accutane 2 times a day(2x40mg), breakfast and dinner instead of just taking once a day at dinner ?
Below: Accutane has a fairly long half-life so it shouldn’t hurt if patients fit the dosage schedule to their lifestyle. (Drugs with long half-lives do not need to be taken in split doses to maintain adequate blood levels). Taking large single doses can cause indigestion (hence warning on label to take with or after food), so if you want to take it as a single dose with a meal, fine. If it causes indigestion, split into two doses. ...Read more

Usually the first meal of the day should be the largest (since you can burn it off during the day) and hold you well past lunch.I would increase the protein component.Sounds more like lunch. ...Read more

Small frequent meals: In general, the healthiest eating pattern for us is to eat small, frequent meals throughout the day.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week.

I don't east breakfast or lunch because i don't have time, and when i get home to eat dinner i eat half a serving and become full but extremely guilty?
Eating disorder?: It sounds like eating is a big issue for you, and that you're controlling how much you eat/don't eat. The "extremely guilty" when you do eat is worrisome to me, because food is there to nourish us rather than torment us. Please see a psychiatrist or therapist skilled in eating disorders, so you can get help before this goes further. ...Read more

Suggestions regarding best breakfasts for nutrition and to hold a person over for a number of hours until a later lunch?
Healthy fat/protein: Starting your day with cereal, milk, and juice does you no good. The healthy way to eat is to have a breakfast with healthy fats and protein.

Hard to speculate: It would require a detailed look at the diet rather than simply relying on the time & calorie load to comment. Growth can slow due to under nutrition but some catchup growth would be possible. A look at your bone age & past growth record would better reflect what your diet did or din not do as well as if further growth is possible. ...Read more
