Everything I've read online says for acne, you would take

Customer Question

Everything I've read online says for acne, you would take the dosage one time per day. My prescription is for 100mg twice daily. Will this affect anything splitting up the dosage? I've actually only been taking 100m once daily, because I was unsure about the higher dosage and a little nervous with the tumor ratings. Want to be sure I'm not taking too high of dosage. ;)
JA: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?
Customer: No, I just take it once per day and have been doing so for a little over a month now.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, nothing I can think of.

The usual dosage is 100 mg once a day but up to 200 mg a day can be prescribed

But no harm with splitting up the dosage
