Well i had one done when I was 16.

I started accutane about 2 months ago (i am now 19) and I was given the green light based on the blood test I had 2 years ago.

So far Ive not had to have another blood test although I am going to the derm in 2 days so I might get one then, I'll let you know

2 weeks?lol that sucks.

I took my first blood test, and the next day my derm got the results, said I was OK to start, sent my prescription to the pharmacy, and I picked my sotret up the next day.

For me, and for everyone as far as I know, you take one blood test a month, to make sure your liver and everything is reacting OK to the drug.

Also need to visit derm once a month to renew the prescritpion and for him/her to check on your progress/side effects.

hope that helpes
