I recently got Murad Acne Complex prescribed to me for 120mg a day. My doctor wants me to take 3 pills (each 20mg) in the morning and do the same at night. Since I have never been on Murad Acne Complex before I am a little skeptical about starting out on this amount. My doctor said I should be fine since I am around 6'8" and 228lbs, and since my body is bigger that I can take a higher dose. I just wanted some feedback on this decision and if anyone has ever been started out on this high of a dose?.

The mg per day sounds about right for your weight. 1mg/kg (your about 104kg) so 120mg is a little over but it's fine. I take 40mg a day but I'm 120lbs (55kg) I should be taking 30mg pills twice a day but my doctor wants to see how I react to 40mgs a day before he ups my dose.quick question-are you taking all three pills at once? ask your doctor why he didn't prescribed you a high mg pill like 50mg's twice a dayI understand y you feel a little skeptical, I would feel that way too.

It is a high dose, but not for your size. I was on 80 mgs a day and weight 118 lbs you should be fine, but let your doctor know if your side affects become too severe..

The reason my doctor is doing this, he said is that Murad Acne Complex usually only comes in 10,20,30,40mg. He didn't feel like mix and matching the pills so I would be taking a higher dose in the morning and then a lower dose at night just to make sure it was equal with my weight. ( ex. 2 (40mg)in the morning, 1 (30mg) at night = 110mg which is closer to thhe actual dosage I should be taking) He just didn't feel comfortable doing that..

Lol I'm taking 40mg a day too but I'm 130lbs xDI think they start us out so low just in case we have some sort of major reaction...because I believe the next step for us is 60mg right after..

For me,week 1, 1 tabletweek 2, 2 tabletsweek 3, 3 tabletsweek 4 (now), 4 tabletsweek 5, 5 tablets100mg every day for the next 2 months...hmmm...means, i'll be taking 40mg over my 60mg/60kg weight thing...but I dont even have a head ache taking 4 tablets...I feel abit weird...because I have no side effects at all...only dry lips sometimes...but it's winter right now which makes it a normal thing...hmmmoh and my derm said,anybody can take as much mg's of Murad Acne Complex,depending on how much side effects they get.he said the 'usual' thing is...60mg if I weigh 60kg,but I can take a double dose, of 120mg even thought I weight 60kg,if my body can take it and my blood tests are perfect,hmmm.

Shortddork!!!! (me too!!!)You are correcto! but I still think that my should have just gave me the 60mgs since my side effects arent too bad, although he wouldnt have known that my side effects werent going to be bad, had he not given me the 40mg first.... My doc is doing the "right thing too" lol.
