can i tan at all while on accutane? i dont mind cutting back from what i do now (a few timse per week), but i cant imagine stopping all together?

- is the initial breakout correlated with how bad your acne already is? (ie. really bad acne, really bad initial outbreak....mild acne, mild initial outbreak?)

- would i be better with low dose treatment?

You cannot tan at all while on accutane. Actually, you have to take extra precautions to avoid the sun and tanning at all.
The initial breakout is different for everybody. It has nothing at all to do with how bad your acne is. If you have mild acne, you shouldn't take accutane.
As for your dose, I have no idea. It's up to your derm.

good luck!!
