Re: Blood tests for accutane

Its like 5 different tests(i.e glucose, lipids, PCK, etc..) per month for 4-6 months. Yes, they are expensive as well!

Re: Blood tests for accutane

You get your blood drawn once a month. All they do is take so much blood and then they do all the testing on it and call ya and tell ya what the test showed. It's more of a pain then anything then to have to go.. but after so long you get used to it. They have to make sure everythings fine with your liver.
