I am about to start Accutane. My doctor is starting me on 10 mg. When I went to the pharmacy, they had to order it as they do not usually keep such low dosages. I notice that many people here are taking higher dosages too. I thought it was common to start at 20 mg. and increase it from there.

I am in my late 30s with cystic acne, but it my breakouts are less frequent than in the past. But I still have lots of scars and dark marks. I am just wondering if I should start with more than 10 mg? I know that the dosage can be increased, but I would rather start higher and have a more effective treatment in a shorter time period. Basically I do not want to waste time on a low dosage which may be increased anyway. Does this make sense or not?

Has anyone here had any experience with this or have any insight?
