Accutane users with Jobs

while most people in here are like 14, 15 yr olds stressing out over two pimples, i was wandering if there are any adults in here who have to somehow adapt to the workplace while on accutane. i mean i havent fully had the initial break out yet but i think i will call out sick if i do, if not suffer the humiliation and embarrassment in the work place

is it me or am i making a bid deal out of this...will my face clear up CONSIDERABLy while on acctune that i wont have much to deal with besides the dryness???

thanks

I'm 26 and work full time. I'm on month 2 of 60 mg and started my initial breakout about 2 weeks ago. I called in sick for the last 3 days of last week b/c my skin was so bad and I didn't want to go given that I am around people the entire time. I have to go back to work today though, which sucks...my skin is definitely calming down, but still way worse than it has ever been in my life. Are you a female? If so, you could try to hide it with makeup! :)

i'm 22, and work as a scientist...

i still go into work every day... i guess the people here, know me as me... and hopefully do not judge me by being spotty (hell, when i started i was more spotty than i am now?!)

maybe you should adopt the same mentality :)

why would accutane have any affect on your job? i was a full time college student, worked part time at a coffee bar. and had rehearsals for a play i was in while on accutane. it shouldn't be a problem. the only problem was nose bleeds. i had a really bad nosebleed in class one day, and one at work.
