So two weeks ago my dermatologist said that I have to stay off Accutane for 3 weeks because my liver enzymes elevated.

 

But I feel completely normal? This news caught me by surprised and I wanted to start my 2nd month. I have one more week and I am getting my blood test on the 19th.

 

 

I don't drink and I don't smoke so...is there any way to lower the enzymes before going to the blood test again? Or is 3 weeks enough for it to go back to normal?

Ok so I'm guessing those are triglycerides? I guess I'll be taking fish oil now.

 

And I feel like 3 weeks is such a long time. Is it affecting my progress? Especially since I only did one month.

Milk Thistle lowers liver enzymes.  It comes as a tea.
