Accutane - Abdomen Bloating/swelling

2 posts in this topic

I started my first course of accutane about 5 weeks ago, 40mg once a day. Around two weeks in, I noticed my gut getting bigger but I did not immediately link it to accutance. About a week ago I was feeling very bloated and gassy. I called my dermatologist and he is having me take the pill every other day for a week to help with the bloating. The bloating has subsided, however my abdomen/gut is still protruding more than normal, maybe 1/2" to 3/4".

Has anyone experienced this before? Does the abdominal swelling subside once the treatment ends? Or is it a permanent thing? Any related experiences and results would be appreciated.

Many have developed Ibs/ gluten intolerance or unexplained bowel issues! Are you having regular bowels? Remember drys up more then the face! I would stop if it continues!
