just started accutane

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

This is my first visit to this site. I have just started accutane about 3 days ago, at 10mg a day for the first week, then increasing to 20mg the second week, then finally up to 30mg. I have had a small breakout already, which isnt particularly worrying me at this time. However, I am having a bit of head pressure. I would not describe it as a headache, but my head does feel heavy across my forhead and temples. I called my pharmacist and she said to take advil, and continue on my regime but to see my dr. if it does not fade or is persistant.

I was just wondering if anyone else out there experienced this issue and if anynoe had any advice.

Thanks so much,

I never experienced that side effect, but your pharmacist gave you the best advice.

Hope you have success with Accutane.
