Hi All, i am a 22 year old male who has had acne for about 6 years now.

Went to a Derm for the first time today (after my GP refeered me)

I had asked my GP about Accutane (thats why he refeered me) and the Derm agreed to put me on it after asking me if i had read about it. I said i had read about it on the internet and he said it is very good and there are alot of people who over react about its side effects (although there are some)

I have to have a blood test (to check my colstrol, sp?) before he can order the tablets for me, but after hearing about all the problems that can happen, being in a wheelchair i thought he would totally dissmiss me taking them.

I will be making a Accutane Diary for the board when i have had my blood test and start talking the tablets, because being in a wheelchair i presume if anyone is likely to get side effects, it would be me, as aposed to some fit 22 year old who runs about everywhere. (i might be totally off the mark here)

Re: Accutane

I look forward to reading your journal. I am in a similar situation as you, except I'm one step ahead. I've already had a blood test, so it's a matter of meeting starting the stuff. I'll keep you updated with my experiences as well.
