Doctors and accutane

I was just wondering, my doctor just prescribed me 3 months worth of accutane cause I'm moving pretty soon, but I thought that doctors are only supposed to prescribe enough for one month at a time?

Well, I already spent 290 for the 3 months but I just find this strange.

Also, she's like "yeah, I'm sure itll be okay if you forget to drop by and get your blood tested cause you seem pretty healthy and all."

I believe the one month rule only applies in the US, it's an iPledge thing. In Canada the rules may be different.

uhm what kind of derm is this? you should ALWAYS be tested month after month to make sure your blood and liver etc are doing fine

just be safe whatever you do especially if you have any adverse bleeding or sudden depression or what not

ps didn't see the Canada thing.......true we do it different here
