I have my next derm appointment on August 5th. My results from the blood test can be entered into the iPledge system on August 8th. So I will be starting close to the same time that you are. I'm going to be on a 4 month course.

I'm very nervous about going on accutane. But we'll see what happens. I'm hoping for a low dosage at least to begin with to see how it will affect my body. But then again thats up to the derm :(

I am starting on Aug. 20! I just have to get one more negative pregnancy test and my appt. to get the prescription is Aug. 20. Since I live in the US, I have really been trying to stay on top of all of the iPledge stuff so that I don't have to delay my start date and so far all is going well. Spoke to my derm last week, and she said to plan for an August 20 start date. I expect to be on it for 20 weeks, but I don't know what dosage I'll be at yet.

So...yeah, I'll be starting same day as you! I am so ready to get this over with :D .

I start on the 14-20th range. My appt is on the 14th but I'm guess he will tell me to get my 2nd blood test then I can start the perscription!!!

how come it takes awhile for you guys to get the accutane pills? is it harder for girls? i remembered i decided to get it on saturday night, had to wait till monday cuz dermatologist office was closed sundays, went in on monday w/o a appointment, gave the blood test in on tuesday and got the pills tuesday night, then started on wedesday morning.

I am starting tonight. Hopefully it will go well! I have bought some Cetaphil Cleanser. I am going to stick with my old moisturizer, Neutrogena SPF15 oil free moisturizer, but I am not sure if it will be enough to help the dry skin I hear about. Will see...

Thats what I thought. But since the pills only come in 10mg, 20mg and 40mg I was given 60 - 40 mg pills and 30 - 20 mg pills. So if I need to I can slack off and take less.

I should be starting accutane around that time (Aug 15th-ish) if all my bloodwork checks out :) Still don't know what my dose or treatment time will be, but I'm looking forward to getting it underway. Glad to have some virtual company in this experience. Hopefully we'll all have exciting results to share in the upcoming months. Good luck everyone!

I take the first pill on the 12/13 so basically I start right now. That's not too far from your specified time. We'll be in it together!
