running low on accutane!!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I accidently lost one of my blister packs of accutane... and hence only have two tablets left (20 mg each) . Problem is i have an appointment next week and am scared i'll start breaking out without the drug as I cant get another prescription until i see my doctor. I've been on accutane for a about 2.5 months now and have seen massive improvement. I'm just a little scared it will go haywire cuz im currently sitting my university exams = stress!!!

Has this ever happened to any one before??

What should i do with my last two tablets! space out the dosage... and just keep washing my face with my clindamycin cleanser (prescribed my same doctor in conjuction with tane??)

I'm pretty sure you'll be okay. From what I've read, Accutane stays in your system for a good while, even after you stop taking it. People have posted about missing a week or so for whatever reason, and it hasn't really affected their course at all. Just re-up when you go see your doctor.
