PLEASE READ THIS. HELP NEEDED ASAP!!! PLEASE!!!

i have been taking accutane for about 14 weeks now.

today i got given doxcycline by my doctor to clear away an STD.

it is only a week i have to take doxy for. is it relatively safe to do this??? will it severly affect my results?? will the doxy affect accutane or vice versa???

need to get this infection cleared. there is no point stoppin my accutane cause it stays in your system for 6 months.

i am really stuck about what to do.

my instinct says just take it because it is inly 14 tablets (2 a day)

please help

As far as i know, it's fine to take other treatments while on accutane and the success of these treatments will not be affected by the prescence of accutane in your body and vise versa.The only things that do affect accutane patients are the use of tetracycline/topicycline topical treatments. I'm sure that you are ok to take the doxy but if you are unsure consult your doc/derm.
