In Topic: 1500 Negative Posts About Accutane

Yesterday, 09:04 PM

I have to agree with mod Moonlight, if your acne is not that bad and your young then I would try other options. It can have a severe effect on the bones and that has been known since the drug first came out and Roche has always stated that.  Yes, It can cause epiphyseal closure which would stunt your growth, is this going to happen no one knows. If it is related to hormones well then Accutane may work temporarily and remember it is not a 100% guarantee to cure any acne permanently.

 

I have no family hx of type 1 diabetes or other autoimmune in my family and I took Accutane at 32 and well the side effect listed at the time was "may cause sugar alterations" recently it now states may cause diabetes.  I am a type 1 diabetic now due to Accutane.

 

It's Russian Roulette and If your really wanting to take it then I would do a extremely low dose!

 

Good Luck

Anybody else's triglycerides affected from taking accutane? Unbelievable, 5 years later and I'm still borderline high.

 
The same here with cholesterol.I can't believe how many deep changes this poison has done to us.

Poison  causes fatty liver! Also if you suffer from anything like thyroid etc that causes cholesterol issues!

Accutane induced hair loss is not in any way the same as B5 hair loss!

I see you mentioned prostatitis, don't take Cipro or Levaquin for it! They are nasty nasty drugs


In Topic: Breathing And Talking Problems On/after Accutane?

I thought I responded to  you yesterday! Can you explain more about trouble talking. Also, do you have palpitations? Sometimes Accutane can cause problems with you lungs/chest and throat.  Have you seen a regular doctor and told them these anxiety meds they are giving you aren't doing anything. What else do you suffer from?
