my derm in CT seems to have no problem prescribing it. He actually suggested it to me and I was a little surprised. But I have tried 3 different antibiotics over the 6 years ive been seeing him so maybe that had something to do with it. My acne isnt even that severe, its just very stubborn. I too have acne on my back and chest which is also why I think he suggested Accutane. It seems like some derms won't put anyone on it, but mine made it seem like it was just another antibiotic.
