I'm living in Sweden, but I'm from Australia- my sister from Aus came to visit me, and she bought me the doxycycline tablets i'd left at home, but there was only about twenty- i took them for about two weeks and then gave up again because they take so long to even show any results, and i didn't have enough for that!
Yep, it definitely holds you back!
I want to chat with a doctor about it, but doctors here sometimes don't speak english so well- I Skyped my australian mother this morning about it, and we talked about the possibility of Accutane- but I also have Celiac disease (gluten) so we're not sure how safe it will be-
but i'm so over my skin that I'm willing to put up with potential nosebleeds, joint pain, etc i think....
I'm just wondering if my GP here can automatically put me on Accutane? Because otherwise it will take SO long to get into a dermatologist here!
Really? I always thought the Swedish are good at speaking English. But aren't you good at speaking Swedish when you've lived there for 5 months?
Oh, you're from the UK. Most users on this website are from the US, that's why I automatically assumed that. Do you guys use kg, too?
I don't have to be referred by my GP. I can choose my doctors myself, luckily. I picked the new derm because she had very good reviews on the internet.
Yes, but i've just had so many experiences with doctors here who use different terms for words i thought were the same in english and swedish, and I don't know so much swedish to be able to have a full medical conference with my GP..!
