Blood Tests for Accutane

Recommended Posts

I have read a lot on this forum regarding having to take periodic blood tests for Accutane, but what are they looking for in your blood?

What blood test besides the one for cholesterol does your doctor order?

Blood counts and lipid (fats, cholesterol) levels

White and red blood cells and platelets (check for decrease)

Triglyceride, blood sugar levels

I think that's it

Here's a lazy reply to your question wink.gif Go to my blog in the link with my signature. On the top left hand side of the page, you'll find a link to the Roche web site. Once there, you'll find PDF's of their literature, which will outline exactly what the blood tests are for...and absolutely EVERYTHING else about Accutane you've ever wanted to know!!!
