I just took my blood test today, and i just remembered that i was suppose to fast before taking the test, but i totally forgot. Will the results from the test change my status for being on accutane? Will it change dramtically or will it be minor?

I am 19 yrs old and weigh 150-160 lbs. Last blood test, the derm said i was 100% normal and healthy. Im currently taking 40mg/day accutane.

Yes, it will alter the results. How badly depends on what you ate and how long prior to the test.

If you ate a big mac 30 minutes prior to the test, call you doc and explain. If you ate a bagel 5 hours prior, it shouldn't push you into warning terrority; just remember to tell your doc if she mentions anything about test results.
