Hello I am a 21 yr old male with severe acne. I have recently started my course of oratane (isotretinoin) from a public hospital in Singapore. The problem is, the dermatologist i saw started me on a really low dose (10mg/day) for the first two weeks and then (20mg/day) subsequently for 2 months. I reasoned with her that I wouldn’t mind taking a higher dose as I want to experience the break out asap (before uni starts which starts 3 months later) and I wouldn’t want to take the drug over a longer period than other people would. What do you think of the low dose method? Should i go back to the dermatologist after a month to request for a much higher dosage?
