As for my side effects on the low dose, they seem to be increasing as time goes on. I'm wondering if it's because a higher amount is finally in my system. None of them are too noticeable except the lip peeling. I haven't noticed flushing but I have noticed my face taking on a pinkish hue from time to time almost like I've been in the sun when I haven't. After running sometimes I feel more sore than usual and I seem to pull muscles easier, not really joint pain though. My skin gets nicks and cuts super easily and seems to take longer to heal so I have to be cognisant of that when playing soccer or mtn biking. My mental health state is far better than it was pre tane when my acne caused me huge amounts of anxiety. On the accutane I feel like I'm finally back to my old healthy self pre acne. I went back to tsking the pill early morning and the night awakenings went away so it's definitely messing with something there. They weren't necessarily dreams but more I would wake up several times a night and sit up because I saw things in the room or what I thought were shadows coming towards the bed. Sometimes my husband would wake me or I would wake up and realize my eyes were open and I was staring at shadows in the corner of the room. I would calm down as soon as I was fully awake realizing that it was just another one of those....totally bizarre and only start up if I take the tane after 1 or 2 pm.
As for long term effects, if I could trade off the side effects currently for no pimples ever I would. I don't worry too much about long term because I know numerous ppl who have taken it and are great. My dad took it and has no long term effects even though he had super dry flaky skin during the course. One of my friends took it about 8 years ago and the only residual effects he had was drier lips than before. He said as the years went on it seemed like his skin got less and less dry so even if you do have some residual thing, it's probably not going to be permanent. I think those with lasting negative effects are the outlier and not the norm.
