How long do you usually go without eating before getting your accutane blood test...?

7 posts in this topic

I worked out, ate burgers (from my foreman grill), cookies, cake and then 5 hours later I took a pill of Mucinex cough and then took my blood test (while I was chewing a sugar free gum)

in the past I would do a complete 12 hour fast...so I don't know what the results will be like this time

haha, #2 i'm not 100% what you were trying to say there, but I have eaten a few hours before my blood tests and they have been fine. My question for you would be if you're going to spend your time working out why eat all that crap!?! The most important part of your workout is eating right.. even if you're trying to gain weight the worst thing you can do is eat everything!

I've eaten 2 hrs before my first blood test, because i forgot that i wasn't allowed too.. when she asked I lied.. I workout too and eat all kinds of junk food right now bulking up :) its winter... OP - do you notice lower back pain when lifting? When i do squats or deadlifts i get terrible lower back pumps, like its unbearable i had to stop doing them.

I just don't eat the morning before, because I always go and get it before school, and then go and eat Breakfast somewhere. But they say it should be 12 hours.

My derm told me I don't need to fast. The nurse always asks if I've eaten and I say I have. I usually get it in the morning a couple hours after a small breakfast.
