Re: accutane, What's Involved?
My derm prescribed it the same day. They did take bloodwork though that same day and did a pregnancy test that same day. I also had to go back once a month to have blood drawn to check my cholesterol and to make sure I wasn't pregnant. I guess all derms are different. I think the reason mine gave it to me the same day was b/c she knew I had been on it a couple times before (prescribed by a different doctor, though), and I knew the whole "routine" when it came to Accutane (bloodwork, preg tests). That's what I'm assuming, but anyway, I got my prescription the same day. I didn't have to wait.
