Do I need any kind of permission to start an Accutane treatment of acne?
Hi Luma - are you an accepted 2013 candidate or a candidate who is waiting? Do not take that drug without checking with Dodmerb. I believe that treatment would need to be over 6 mos prior to I day. Mr. Mullen should be able to tell you.
Accutane is disqualifying from the day you start treatment until 6 weeks after the last dose is taken.
Of course the flip side of this is that if your physician/dermatologist feels that your acne is severe enough to require Accutane treatment, then the acne itself could also be a disqualification.
I would contact DoDMERB as soon as possible and find out what they advise.
