Hi all,

my derm finally put me on Accutane! I'm soooo excited! biggrin.gif/ Can't wait to pop the first pill! I haven't been given the prescription in the first place because my doc wasn't sure about my "weird" cholesterol levels (too much of the good stuff HDL, a lot less of the "bad" LDL). She then referred me to a specialist and he (at an appointment 4 weeks after the blood test results....grrrr) gave me the blessing to go on Accutane as he's convinced the results are due to genetic disposition and I'm totally healthy, so there's nothing to really worry about.

Well, I'll start the medication on Sunday, hopefully everything turns out fine...

Peace!

good luck... i started 12 days, no result yet (yes i am a little in-patient :}

for me the most weird thing is that after trying to fight acne for 20+ years with cremes & cr*p i don't put anything on my face anymore :}

i hope it works well for you. While on it, i couldn't get a pimple if i tried, just blew those suckers away & stopped the oil like nothing else. Pile on a good moisturizing cream, that's all you need biggrin.gif
