I have a wedding to be in this Saturday and have been prescribed Presnidone for 5 days to clear up my acne before it. The only thing is I don't have 5 days to take it. I am supposed to take 3 pills once a day. Would it be okay if I took 3 pills twice 2 days so I can get the whole 5 day dosage in?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Yes, you can take upto max of 2mg/kg/day.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
