I just read your message regarding the topical accutane. I am curious how did you approach your derm. to get the prescription and what did you tell the pharmacy when you brought it in? Sorry for all the questions, I'm curious what city do you live in? I'm in NYC and wondering if this is something they will do here?
: Oh, it's no bother at all. Since they are compounding this stuff, there isn't a name for it per say. The bottle is just labled: Accutane Gel 0.05% - Apply topically nightly at bedtime sparingly to face. That's about all it says, apart from the pharmacy name and address and my name.
: : Is it just called "topical Accutane?" This is really interesting to me. I really want to try it if my acne comes back after the Accutane. I wonder why they an make that stuff, but Isotrex is not approved. Hm...I'll have to check the ingredients of Isotrex.
: : Thanks again,
