    No Blood Test Before Accutane? Is This Safe?
    I just got put on 40 mg of Accutane by my GP yesterday. He told me to get a blood test in a month, and that was it. I've been reading a lot about it online and it seems like almost everyone else had to get a blood test before they started and once every two weeks while on it. I'm kind of worried that something will go wrong with my liver or cholesterol and my doctor won't know until it's too late.

    I live in Canada, so maybe the rules are different here or something? I don't have to get pregnancy tests either.

    -avoiding eating messy food because you don't want to wipe your makeup off with a napkin
    -avoiding kissing your partner in public because your makeup will rub off on them and expose your acne
    -finding people giving you weird looks, going to the bathroom, and realizing that a whitehead has exploded on your face
    -your face starting to bleed without warning and people giving you weird looks
    -not wanting to smile too much because it hurts

    When I was a teenager my sister's friend said to me, "It must be so hard having such ugly skin when your sister has perfect skin." Damn right it's hard, but you don't need to point it out!
