If that's what they say...

It takes a few weeks to be completely eliminated from the body, so there'll still be some 'in there' after six days.

You will be fine, but your doctor should program their appointments better so that you don't miss any days. Hopefully it won't happen again.

by the way I missed 5 or 6 days, but not b/c my doctor was irresponsible but b/c of Hurricane Wilma in S. florida (all business were closed, no power). My doctor went the extra mile to get us the prescription as soon as possible.

The way I understand accutane is missing days doesn't even matter - its efficacy is determined by the total amount you've taken over your whole lifetime. Still, I'm sure you want to get off accutane as soon as possible.
