    How does taking Accutane work while one is actually in a commissioning program? I searched other threads but only found ones that pertained to people taking it before their DoDMERB exam/entering an academy or ROTC.

    I am a contracted, scholarship MS2 in Army ROTC. I took my DoDMERB exam as a senior in high school. My dermatologist wants to start me on Accutane next month. How will this affect me?

    I would contact DoDmerb and ask that question. But since the use of Accutane may disqualify you from commissioning, I would try something else that isn't a disqualifying treatment. Maybe Doxycycline?

    If you are on scholarship, anytime your medical conditions change you must inform them. Going on a long term prescription, such as accutane, you need to inform them.

    I would not move a step forward without clearing it with DoDMERB first.
