K, so i have an appointment tommorow but i TOTALLY forgot to take the blood test. I'm thinking if I go he'll hopefully give me a new prescription and then ill just take the bloodtest the day after. If i have to rescedule I will be off the pills for a good week or 2 cause ive ran out and i dont want that.

You won't receive the prescription until your derma enters your blood test results into the iPledge system. So no, you can't just take it later. Call your derma in the morning and let them know and they will tell you what you need to do.

Yeah... kinda.

I actually elected to do my labwork at the derms office, and given that I lived like 45 miles away from his facility, I didn't see a lot of sense in making multiple trips. So, I got in the habit of scheduling my monthly visit and lab on the same day. My derm was comfortable prescribing before I had my results back, but the fact that I was getting my lab through them was likely a factor in it.

If I were you, I would explain the situation to your derm and tell them that you will fax a copy of the lab to the office the next day.
