Accutane Blood Tests...

This is very important!

Can anyone please tell me exactly WHAT kind of blood test I need to get in regards to my Accutane prescription?

I've been put on a second course but have an appointment with my derm in 4 weeks to get more refills as he only gave me this one round until I get my tests.

I called and made an appointment at the clinic, but he never specified WHAT tests exactly I need.

I've been before but there's no way I remember what was done.

Anyways, I want to go and get them done in the next day or so to be safe, but I need to tell them what they're looking for.

Any help?

Your derm should give you a lab slip or prescription specifying what tests he wants - different derms like to see different panels. Mine called for full lipid, liver enzymes, and of course pregnancy. Some derms order other liver tests like bilirubin and some of them want to see blood sugar as well. You should contact your doctor.
