Doctors appointment

Recommended Posts

well yeah, I got a doctors apointment this tuesday (the 18th) and im really hoping he will give me accutane.. or atleast recommend me to a dermatologists to get accutane! I really think this will work for me, since i've tried every thing else there is.. I just hope doctors can prescribe this.. I want to start it as soon as possible!!

can they?

I tried making an appointment with a derm, but they said I needed a doctors reveral.. gay.. i've been waiting for like 2 months now, and finally I got a doctor.!

Hey :)

As far as i'm aware, only derms can prescribe 'tane..so that's a bit of a pain in the arse. Don't see why your gp would have any probs referring you to a derm, though! Might take you a bit to get in, though..have heard it can take like 2/3 months :shock: but dw, you could get lucky like me..got in within 2 wks cos of a cancellation :D Hopefully he/she wont stuff you around..then you can start your course after your bloodtest :) (I think i started a wk or so after my appt.)

Good luck!

It depends where you live, in the UK only derms can prescribe it, I presume it would be the case in some other countrys too.
