No, not in my case. I had an appointment that was about 25-26 days after. I don't think it should matter as the lab tests aren't done close together.

Besides, any longer than 30 days and you'd start running out of the medication..

I usually do my appointments 2-3 weeks apart.. if you waited 31 days you would run out of medication because you're only supposed to get a 30day supply.. so I don't see how or why your derm would recommend you do that.

Yes, my doctor always makes me wait 31 days before my next appointment. I sometimes run out for a day. I think maybe they just misunderstand the Ipledge or something. Not sure why. It doesn't bother me so I've never asked.
