Ok, I am on month 3, day 13 of Accutane, 80mg.  I started at 40mg, then 60mg, and I will stay on 80mg for the duration.  Has anyone else noticed that this seems to make you very tired.  I am a very high energy, active person.  Achy joints I can deal with.. But I work in a fast paced job and do not need to be tired all day long.  I am planning on talking to my derm this coming month about it.  Just wondered if any fellow users have noticed the sleepiness it causes?

Thanks!!! smile.png

I remember being tired while I was on it during my first course. I think its pretty normal. And your on a pretty high dose as I was.

At least my saving grace is, I won't be going any higher because of the weight/dosage ratio.

Yes, I have been tired during my entire course. I should be done soon and I'm hoping that it goes away quickly!
