how long before getting accutane?

Recommended Posts

Whats the process in order to get accutane once your dermatologist prescribes it for you? Because I know theres blood tests and such while on accutane, but are there any tests before recieving it?

I have a dermatologist appointment in a few days in which I'll probably be getting accutane, and I'm wondering how soon can I get my prescription? Thanks

I don't know if this is the norm, but my derm. gave me a perscription and waved me on my way. Went down to Walgreens and got it filled. And that was it. When I was at his office, I forgot about the bloodwork so didn't ask why I wasn't getting any beforehand.

I was on accutane once before, I discontinued it after a few days due to rashes, and they did do the bloodwork before the perscription.

So I guess it can go either way depending on your doctor.
