Re: Accutane/isotretinoin. Abnormal wbc w/differential
depending on dr internet is not a great thing to do.....if you look hard enough, youll find whatever info you are trying to find..right, or wrong.
Its not abnormal for certain patients to respond exactly like this to accuatane. I had the same reaction and within 6 months of being off the drug my labs were completely back to normal. Youll repeat them down the road and more than likely find that things are okay.....dont freak out.
Its good that your doctor took you off the drug. After 3 rounds, one has to assume it isnt working for you. I did 2 rounds myself and gave up. What actually worked for me was going the medical spa route- I found a dermatologist who uses lasers. Had IPL laser done 5 times, 6 weeks apart, and shrunk all the sebaceous glands in my face- this reduced the production of cystic acne. 3 years later, my skin is 95% perfect. I can live with that. Its a huge improvement.
I wish better days ahead for you.
