Starting Accutane on a rather inconvenient time.

Hi all.

Somewhere around 5 or 6 years ago I was put on Accutane to clear some very bad acne I had during my teens. I was relatively good for a few years until recently, as I began to get postulates every now and them, especially around my mouth.

After trying ABs with my doctor, she recently decided to try Accutane once again. She asked for 1 month, and told me we might require 3 months. Other than the price, I have no problem with this, BUT, I have to travel for work in two weeks.

I'm concerned about any severe side effects that might when I'm abroad, but to be honest, I'm way more concerned about any initial outbreak while I'm there. I have to meet with a few clients and I really don't want to have to deal with that.

What do you guys recommend. Should I start Accutane by now (1x40mg/day), or should I wait until I come back?
