Do I qualify for accutane?

Recommended Posts

Ive had acne for 5 years. its not that bad, few pustules here and there, maybe a cyst once a week on my face. my back is 'quite severe' as my doc said. ive been on tetralysal and trimethoprim along with duac, differin and all the bp products there is! None of these ever worked. i know that my acne is not severe but it is really affecting me mentally and socially. Oh ya im a 20 (almost 21) year old male. I have done extensive research on accutane and i am willing to risk the side affects in chance of getting clear skin. Im seeing the derm tomorrow. Do you think he will prescribe me accutane if i explain my position?

if u know the drug well enough--the risks and possible dangers it could pose to your health AND you're going to take the extra care and precaution required during the use of the drug..the doctor SHOULD prescribe u the drug!be confident and don't shy away from expressing your anxieties and insecurities..at the same time don't sound too sadistic or depressed. . be hopeful that the drug will help u to improve the quality of your life.
