I wouldn't really know how to answer that since when i went to the derm she offered my accutane streight away, not because of the fact my acne was bad (which it wasn't it was mild/moderate) but the fact that it was getting me down a hell of a lot.

Although, before she offered it to me i told her what i've already been on (4 different oral meds / quite a few topicals)

That in her mind she could tell i needed the next step which was obviously accutane, so she gave it me no worries

What have you tried before already? & did you state this to your derm?

minocylin, trention gel, differin and so much other things i cant remember lol

differin and minocylin cleared my skin really well almost perfect

so i asked my derm to prescribe that mino and the differin because it was the only thing that actually worked but he said it wasnt strong enough

the pic below was the time pd when i was on the differin and minocylin medication

lol sorry for the little border effects lol i was bored one day

Im in the same boat, I go see my family doctor and he keeps prescribing me the same shit Tetracycline and with Benzagel 10%. Ive been on it for over a year.

At my last appointment I asked him about Accutane and like lost it on me. So I called the ONLY DERM we have in this town and she said I needed a doctors referal letter before she could work with me. So Im scared to ask him for one.

And it takes like 2 weeks atlease to get an appointment with the derm since shes so busy being the only one.

Anyways good luck to the both of us hopefully we can get on it.
