Tryglicerite levels

my tryglicerite levels have been around ~135 for my first 2 months of Accutane, but I just got my results back for the 3rd month and it's up to about ~180 now. I haven't been to my doctor yet but an increase that large doesn't feel right. If i have to go off Accutane and only have 2 months of treatment i will probably gut myself like a fish

eeer that's not a large increase... either way, you are WELL within safe limit.

generally ppl on tane will go up to 300+ no problem.

400+ may be cause for concern.

500+ or 600 is the absolute top.

The figures are documented somewhere... but anyway, no cause for concnern and if your derm pulls you off, he/she is crazy.

Mine just went from 180 to 330 and my derm kept me on 40mg x 2. He did give me another drug to take to help lower my tryglycerides. Your jump is not big at all.
