Approved!

Relief! My derm approved Accutane for me. Have to do the bloodwork this week, but if all comes back ok, then I have the green light to start the treatment. I'm really glad - 4 to 5 months away from clear skin!!!

How To Get Accutane?

...one other thought - For the last year I have been on mynocycline and tazorac, but it's not working. (In addition to trying Pro-Active, Obage, Clearasil, and every OTC product out there) .... I really don't want my derm to put me on another type of prescription treatment that is not going to work. I have tried to schedule my doctor's appointment at a time when my acne is particularly bad, so that she can see what I'm dealing with. Problem is, it takes a few weeks to get in, so by then the flare up may have lessened. If that happens, I'm concerned my doctor won't take my request seriously and won't prescribe Accutane for me. So my question is ** does anyone have any advice on what to say / explain to your dermatologist in order to get an Accutane prescription? ** M
