How to get Accutane?

Recommended Posts

It might be a little freaky or silly question, but can you advise me what do I have to say to my derm to get accutane? My skin is quite clear (less than 5 zits) but every few weeks my face explodes. I want to go on Accutane because other things doesn't help me. I'm seeing a derm on Tuesday and I'm afraid my face doesn't look bad enough to get Accutane. So what should I say to get Accutane?

well its probably safer to go on accutane than long term antibiotics because antibiotics kill your good bacteria too. and tell him that your face explodes and tell him you want clear skin. tell him nothing works, tell him what you tried, make a list if you want to. not all derms like to give out accutane as it is more work for them so you can always get a new derm if you have to.

If your face isn't already very oily, you can put on some jojoba oil before your visit. It looks just like natural sebum.
