Anybody else suffer from anxiety? Mine has been pretty bad these last 6 months. Weird because all my other symptoms are getting better. I just don't know how to go about treating anxiety. Not sure I want an SSRI or anything like that.

I was once told by a general practitioner that accutane has absolutely no effect on the brain whatsoever, that must be why they use it on some brain cancers

Tell me about it. I've actually spoken with a woman, who's son was treated with accutane for cancer of the nervous system.

Who elso on here experienced hair loss from acutane? Here is an image of my hair now solely from accutane hair loss(hair loss doesn't run in my family) and it has been over a year since last taking it. How bad is your hair loss compared to mines? I continue to loose more hair everyday. I'm at a lost of hope of what to do about it. I realized I can't take biotin because it causes me to break out bad. I started using lllt and will update if I notice any improvements, but I just don't know what to do anymore. It is really affecting me since I'm not supposed to be experiencing hair loss in the first place due to genetics. Whoever else is experiencing hair loss from accutane, please let me know how bad it is compared to mine.


I had a visible bald spot on my crown as well, it filled back on it's own after about 6 months. Thankfully, Male Pattern Baldness doesn't run in my family.

Just wanted to make a quick update on my Rso

Some changes.

I restarted my job which requires light exercise and instead of exercise breaking my body down it now adds to my muscle mass.

The last couple years I couldnt make any more than 2-3 pullups. It had no use when I did it everyday or twice a day, my body just couldnt grow any muscle or strentgh.
Im doing ten atm with ease.
I completely got my muscle mass back.

My libido is completely back. It goes erect without having a concious thought about sex, when I see a sexy woman it goes erect even when I dont think she is my type.

Im currently off Rso. I was unable to take it for a week but my libido is still the same. Im even confident enough to say I dont need it anymore because my body is switched on again and it is a matter of time before my body completely heals itself.

Did you have any other symptoms?

hello guys,


i would like to share my success story with you.I was suffering from chronic low libido which i am sure was caused by accutane.I experienced complete absence of sexual sensation on my genitals and as a result erectile dysfunction and difficulty having an orgasm.After i stopped taking accutane my symptoms strangely got worse as the time passed instead of improving.I tried various things to reverse my libido loss such as healthy diet,some drugs that were supposed to help improve libido, but nothing worked.I then found a report in the internet about dr. Pezzi who has written the book ''the science of sex'' and claimed that he reversed his libido loss caused by accutane by taking the drug finasteride.I was determined to find a solution to my problem so i decided to try it.I began taking 1mg/day and then slowly increased to 5mg/day.I took it for a total of 5 months.During that time i started experiencing a return of my acne which was accompanied by a small increase in libido and a slight return of sexual sensation.I continued taking it as long as i noticed some positive effects.The big surprise happened when i decided to stop taking the drug.I experienced a huge increase in libido,sexual sensation and acne.My spontaneous and morning erections which were gone since i had taken accutane came back and i no longer had problems reaching an orgasm.I don't know what exactly this drug did to my system but it worked.6 months have passed since i stopped taking finasteride and i still experience all the positive effects,so i believe the effects are permanent.I now feel like a normal man of my age(i am 28 years old).The only side effect i had was the return of acne but i believe that has to do with the return of my libido but i prefer having acne and a healthy libido than having no acne and no libido.


And how are things so far my friend? I have been reading so many threads and you seem the only one who was able to magically reverse the side affects of accutane as the drug magically stole our sex drive away. 

My sex drive has improved dramatically from doing nothing. In fact, my bald spot it now filled back to normal as well, and my bone density has also improved. Weird because my exhaustion/weakness seems to be getting worse, which is by far my worst symptom at this point, can't do much of anything. After my crash, I had no feeling down there for about 9 months.  It's now been 1 year and 7 months since my "crash" and my libido is back to about 65-70% of what it was before.
