for those with mild to slightly-moderate acne, how hard is it to find a derm that will put them on accutane?

Recommended Posts

I'm currently on accutane, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to relapse when I get off; when I relapse I'm going to want to go to a different derm but my acne will probably be mild to slightly-moderate

#1 What why do you think you'll relapse?

#2 Why do you want to switch derms if this one prescribed tane anyway?

#3 In my experience accutane is the most prescribed treatment (my doctor suggested it to me and 2 derms did as well)...so I finally took it

Man that is a defeatist attitude. I know you said your derm is conservative, have you really asked for more? I mean told him that you want more, think you will relapse, and ask what will happen if he is wrong and you relapse.

I went on accutane with mild/slightly moderate acne, and, in fact, my derm was the one highly considering it...I took 80 mg for 5 months....ive been off for a couple months now and everythings been great thus far.
