Shortness Of Breath On Accutane?

4 posts in this topic

Hello, this is my second month on Accutane. I recently experienced shortness of breathing. Felt like I couldn't get enough air, and had a little numbness in my face and hands. I stopped Accutane for 3 days, and the symptom went away. Anyone else experienced similar symptoms before?

not personally and I'm guessing it's not too common because I haven't seen anyone else post about shortness of breath. I would probably consult your doctor to be on the safe side.

Yes see your doctor ASAP! Accutane can cause pleurisy (inflammation of the lungs) and it can also alter sugar levels which can cause shortness of breath and numbness and tingling along with just in general neuropathy.
