Waiting before going on Accutane if your on Mino?

I was just wondering if it was safe to stop Mino and to go directly on accutane...Ive heard some people say that you should wait a few weeks because its dangerous to mix both of them together...anyway could someone tell me how long one should normally wait before taking accutane???

Thanks

She told me too wait a week and then start accutane. So no more then a week- a week and a half then you should be set.

Only a week? ok...im so confused now because one person told me that their derm said a month but i thought that was a bit much....anyway i think two weeks is more than enough

Well, I was on mino before I got accutane, but I just happened to stop it a week or two before I started accutane, on my own will, not knowing that it would help or anything. But my derm knew that I was on mino and did not tell me to wait at all, so for all my derm knew I went from one day taking mino to the next day taking accutane. I don't see why you would wait really.

hahah i was ON minocycline whilst taking tane. biggrin.gif yeh but low dose tane like 20mg/week in the end. then i stopped mino.

So its pretty safe, u might get a headache if u start tane after stopping minocycline the day before.
