In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

I have to agree with Indigo! I am totally suprised that your labs came back all normal, Most of thoose issues I had both with my thyroid and then it was for sure symptoms I had about 1yr befoe I got dx with type 1 diabetes! Most have subsided since taking insulin. Try a high protien, low carb, (kinda like a paleo diet), like I said I totatlly agree with what Indigo suggested. I have had sucess with supplements, yet I was defcient in a few so they have worked for me, but for some people they don't.



What supplements you take? and what lab tests have you done?

Alright I'm re-posting this. Any advice will be highly appreciated!

"I had taken roaccutane 20mgs 3 years back for once every week. I live in a 3rd world country where you can easily get prescription drugs with the money. I didn't have proper acne just a face similar to fry pan. My face would get really oily after 2-3 hours i wash it. The only reason i took this drug was to eradicate the oil off my face and i believe that would cure my mild acne as well. Symptoms started after a few days i took the first pill, but i ignored it and continued it. I might have eaten 8+ pills total in a span of 2 months. I'm 21 now and i suffer from a multiple symptoms.
  • Hunger - whenever i eat, whatever i eat i just seem to feel hungry again after 15-20mins and after passing a stool i get those hunger pains, as if im starving for 2-3 days.
  • Thirst/Urination - its like a never ending cycle, i urinate, i get thirsty, i drink, again i urinate.. and it goes on.. I'm never fully satisfied, my thirst is never quenched and my urge to urinate is never stopped. I often get white foamy urine.
  • Fatique - generally im tired the whole day, but after eating a meal i am so sleepy that i get all dizzy, let it be breakfast or a small meal, im bound to feel sleepy after it.
  • Muscle loss -i feel like i'm gradually losing muscle mass all over my body and instead gaining fat, i can see my waist gain a 2-3 inches of fat layer over this period of 3 years.
  • Dandruff - No matter what anti-dandruff shampoo i use, theres just noway this dandruff is going away. I can literally spot flakes of dandruff in my hair.
  • Backpain- I can't stand for long or walk too much. My back starts to main along with my legs. Generally i have become so fragile and weak.
  • Acne- I had gotten the worst acne after one year of roaccutane, and nothing would help it, i tried everything, the only thing that worked for me, and i'm continuing it is milk of magnesia, i have to put it daily in the morning on my face before going out.
  • Eye strain & Photo sensitivity
  • Memory loss - i was one of the smartest kid in high school and now i struggle hard to concentrate and i find it hard to remember even the basic things.
  • Ear Hair - i have these tiny hair growing on my ear, maybe the roaccutane has messed up with my DNA. Im just aging very fast.
  • Also i get a lot mood of swings, im easily scarred now, easily i get upset, i easily get bored of things and unfortunately people too and i easily get irritated.

I got tested for basic diseases like Diabetes and Celiac Disease also got checked my thyroid levels and all reports were normal.

I know i might never be able to fully recover but atleast i want to manage my symptoms, i have visited a lot of doctors and they all seem confused and nobody exactly knows whats wrong with me. I hope you guys can help me out diagnose my problem and atleast i can manage my symptoms. Changing diet is quite difficult for me, I stay at a dorm, and unless i get a proper recommendation from a doctor i wont be able to request for special food. I can get tests done quite easily, if anyone of you can suggest what tests should i get done so i would have a better understanding of my problem."
