Simple Question Needs Answers! in Prescription acne medications Posted March 6, 2010 I have scheduled an appointment to start my process for accutane next week. I know that I will be approved because my dermatologist gave me the option, but I wanted some time to think about it. I understand that blood tests are done before and during the course of accutane. Is the initial test done at the dermatologists office, or by my regular doctor? I don't know if I should make an appointment to see my doctor before my derm appointment or not, and now it's the weekend so I can't call. Any knowledge would be greatly appreciated! I just wanted to get started ASAP!
