Hi, the recommended dosage of Accutane is 0.75mg/1kg of body weight. If your weight is 77Kg the beginning starting dose should be around 60mg. Also after 3-5 weeks your derm should reconsider the dosage and depending on the results the dosage can be decreased up to 0.1mg-0.3mg per 1kg of body weight, meaning that the dosage for you can be 8-20mg/daily

Thanks for responding. The concern with starting off at such a high dose is that it will aggravate my rosacea. He wanted to start me off at 70mg, but all of the literature states that that's WAY too high of a dose. I've been taking 20mg daily and still experiencing some flushing of my cheeks etc. 70mg would have been way too high of a dose for me.

I'm just starting my third week now at 20mg. There are several studies comparing low dosing with high/standard dosing, and they all pretty much have the same efficacy and remission rates, of course with the lower dosage there are far fewer nasty side effects.
