Feels Like Theres Water In My Lungs After 1 Week Of Isotretinoin (Accutane)

4 posts in this topic

Hey guys iv just taken my 7th dose of my isotretinion which is accutane as im lead to believe and ive already had some hair loss, nose bleeds, dry face, etc but on the 3rd day i got a small pain on my chest where it felt like someone had been sitting on me along with a cough, now im having constant coughing fits and it feels like theres water on my lungs. I also have a general feeling of being unwell and have for the past 4-5 days. I was wondering wether this could be due to the side effects and should get it checked out or not. thanks.

Stop taking accutane immediately and contact your doctor. That's a more serious side effect than the usual dryness.

I hope you feel better soon.

Yep be alert for any serious changes, and call emergency services if you feel it's warranted.

That almost sounds like some sort of bronchial infection or pneumonia. Definitely not a regular side effect of accutane; accutane could though possibly affect your immune system and make some people more vulnerable to infections. Keep an eye on things.
