In Topic: Repairing the long-term damage from Accutane

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?

Well no one can honestly say if her hair will return to normal or not! Some have been lucky to have their hair return to normal, many have had the shedding stop, but the thickness never came back, some have a problem continually with cycles of hair loss and growth. Accutane can deplete many vitamins such as, Vit D, Biotin, B12, Iron, Ferritin etc. Sometimes it can cause TE which can last any where from 3-12 months. It can also cause alterations in sugars, thyroid and other hormones which may cause hair loss.


Does she have hair loss from anywhere else? Is she taking any vitamins, eating well, keeping hydrated etc. What shampoo etc. is she using?
