Can I see different doctors while on Accutane?

Accutane is part of the iPledge program where you have to be tied to one prescribing physician only at a time. If you move or something, you can be re-registered through the program and transferred to a different physician's care. But you cannot bounce back and forth between prescribing physicians. Because you need to be seen monthly for Accutane, it is necessary that you start a regimen only when you can see the same physician monthly and consistently.
