Finally got prescribed accutane...

Well after 7 years of suffering from mild to moderate, and at times severe acne, and continually being refused a derm referal, and trying everything under the sun, I finally convinced a walk in doctor that It was either a derm or I have a nervous breakdown.

Walk in, and within 5 minutes, I had the prescription. I am so happy to finally be prescribed something that I know is going to work.

Here's to hoping it does; I've been prescribed 40 mg a day, followed by upping it to 80 mg a day. I'm not sure if I should hop on a drug plan first, or just pay the cash up front for the treatment... hmmm, we'll see. I'm insisting on name brand, but was told it will be around 400.00 for 5 months, so thats definitely worth it for me.

Anyways, just thought I'd share - I'll be keeping a journal of progress.
