I just got back from the dermatologist and he is going to prescribe me accutane! Woo hoo! I used to be on Ortho Tri Cyclen but I stopped using it and so now I have to wait until I get a prescription from my gynecologist. That will be another month from now. Then I have to get my bloodwork done and do a pregnancy test and I will be ready! I won't be on it for another 6-8 weeks, but that's OK. I wish I had not stopped taking my BC pills, but I didn't know whether they were actually helping out or not. Now I know that they were helping some, and once I get on accutane, my face will hopefully get better. Yeah! You guys gave some great advice. Thanks. All I did was explain my situation and told him about everything that I had tried and he mentioned accutane to me and I asked if I would be willing to try it (he! he!) and I was like "Well, yeah, if it helps my face." He acted a little shocked though. He said my acne wasn't bad enough but if I wanted to try it I could. I don't see why a derm wouldn't want to prescribe accutane, even if it can be harmful. Thanks guys, and I agree with what you all said. If a derm won't prescribe it to you, then tell him/her that you will go find someone who will and walk out. They might rethink it.
