40mgs ed is usually the lowest, in fact I'm not sure that I've heard anyone running it lower than that.

i'm on it as well..........
i got my script through the doc, and heres how its being run:
6 months total, starting at 40mg ed for 30 days. each month he bumped it up 20mg, up to 120mg ed for 30 days.
i'm having bloodwork done once a month to check triglyceride values.
dry and chapped lips, any nooks and crannies of the body are vulnerable as well(elbows, nasal passages, etc)
make sure you moisturize often.
doc told me that 95.5 percent of all people on accutane see results. of the 95.5 percent, 80 percent will NEVER see a recurrence. so, if you can finish a whole 6 month cycle, you have an excellent chance of acne never coming back, juice or no juice.
good luck bro, and try to hang in there, as it gets pretty rough towards the end.

First of all, how old are you? Acne often subsides with age. If you are under 25, I would just wait. Second, Accutane is not something to be taken lightly. It should never be taken without consultation and monitoring by a doctor. You can really mess up you liver. If you acne is light, and comes after a cycle(which is normal), what makes you think you need accutane?
