Accutane with other meds

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody. Quick question for you all. I was wondering if any of you have been on anti-depressents or anti-anxiety meds while on accutane. I have been wondering about this for a while and thinking I should maybe give it a try. Should I wait until accutane runs its course in 5 months or figure out something now? Thanks everybody!

Hi, Amy. As a class of medications, SSRIs are compatible with Accutane. I'm on Lexapro for chronic depression/anxiety, and it seems to work out fine. I'm sleepy as all hell, but that could be the result of either or both meds. Anyway...feel free to PM me if you have any more specific questions about my experience. Good luck! -Emi

I was wondering the same thing. I'm going to make an appointment and ask my primary doctor as well as my dermatologist to make sure it's fine.
