So, basically my doctor has messed up my appointment dates and has scheduled me to come in a week after my Roaccutane pills run out.. 

 

I've been on 40mg for 4 months and it looks like i will have to wait 7-9 days to get more and continue my treatment which is scheduled for 6 months. Anyone else had this problem or been on holiday and not taken the pills during treatment??

Don´t worry my dear friend. Accutane stays in your system for about 2-4Weeks.

Should make little or no difference according to this study.

 

Accutane stays in your body for up to a month after you stop taking it, which is why women cannot safely get pregnant until at least one month after they have stopped taking Accutane (which is a known teratogen).

 

 

Good luck
