hey! my doctor is supposed to register me and then the ipledge ppl will send me something via email. i have to wait a month before i can officially start accutane. did you receive similar info? it could be because i am a girl.
Its a little chaotic the whole ipledge thing. The doctors office registers you. The ipledge program or your doctors send you a password. I never got mine so had to call the 800 # from the website. Your username is the # on your ipledge card. You will also have to give this to your pharmacist- who will confirm you have answered your questions on the web before he/she gives you your prescription. Accutane causes severe severe birth defects and this is precautionary.
My derm office called me the day I got my prescription because the ipledge website kicked back to them that I had listed different methods of birth control than the doctors did (they also have to answer these questions monthly). It raised a red flag. Anyway- you do have to answer questions monthly & the pharmacist will confirm monthly.
I had a tubal ligation 5 years ago and still was given 3 pregnancy tests prior to the day i received my medicine (2 in office & 1 in bloodwork) That's how serious the Accutane is. Thats what ipledge is for.
The 30 day wait does suck- but it will come before you know it!! GOod luck!!
