Tane Monitoring

Recommended Posts

I started Tane at the beginning of September :shhh: !

Its now almost November and i havent gone back for ONE checkup or even new blood tests.... :shifty:

When i spoke to my doctor(hes not even a derm but a general practitioner) the day i got prescribed he said i should come at the end of October? Is this correct.It also seems a bit long for me.Im on 20 mg a day.

Also isnt anyone on Tane supposed to be monitored and progress must be checked upon?

Who knows.....my liver could be messing out right now and i dont know :ninja:

Some of your great feedback would be highly appreciated :dance:

it should be checked every month, at least until they know how it's effecting you.

This is the problem with getting Accutane from a GP. They often just don't know the bloodwork procedures and dosing requirements the way a derm with years of experience with Accutane does. I think you should insist on bloodwork at least once and at every dosage increase to check for problems. If your bloodwork is iffy at all you need monthly testing.
