Welcome to our Forum.  It is my pleasure to encourage you to believe your test results.  Acutane is not an immunosuppressive drug and there is no reason to worry that use of acutane would delay the availability of reliable test results.  

I hope you find this good news.  Your 29 day test results are reliable. EWH
