Blood test results

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I just started my third month on accutane and just had my blood test and visit to my derm last week.

The hepatic function profile showed that the SGOT(AST) and SGPT(ALT) are quite high, 93 and 96 IU/L respectively. My derm lowered my dose from 60 to 40 mg per day and asked me to take a new blood test in two weeks.

Have any one had the same results when on accutane course, and what happened after a new test?

I've been taking doryx(doxycycline) for about 4 weeks and I think is helping with the inflammation but the healing is so slow for cysts and pustules (not breaking out as much thought).

Hope to hear from you people.

The antibiotic is messing up your liver. Look up "milk thistle" supplement that nourishes your liver. It lowered my ALT reading dramatically from 100+ to 60 something in a couple of weeks.

actually I think the doxycycline is helping with the inflammation a lot, worry if I stop I may break out even worse..
