I have the feeling that my derm doesn't have a clue either. He said he was putting me on a low dose to start off and he was going to build it up but 70mg is almost the maximum dose. But hes not as bad as my gp that referred me to him. I went in because I was sick and had a chest infection. He said we better get something for your face aswell,You arent very pretty are you? I was so close to punching him.

My derm is alright, he seemed nice, but I only saw him before I started my treatment, not once during my treatment.

The nurses were pretty clueless, but in regard to the number of tablets, I got more than I should have every month apart from the first one. Then at the end they just told me to finish off any tablets I have left.

They didn't have a clue what I was on about when I asked about the meals I'm taking it with and it being fat soluble. The one even said, no you don't need fat with it, just eat it with any meal.

They didn't look at my cumulative dosage or anything either. They was going on about how I had been on accutane for longer than normal (6 months) but they didn't take into account my cumulative dose was on around 135mg/kg at that point, which is fairly normal.

You can change derm, but it's not always easy to get appointments and stuff, well that's what it's like here anyway.

my derm is a young, nice girl, and she put me on accutane on my second visit to her after seeing all that i had already done. it seemed too good to be true.

then she made me wait over TWO months to start my tane because of mistakes she made (but didn't admit to). it's their job to make our skin clear, they shouldn't suck at it so frequently!! :snooty:
