does accutane usually make you depressed?

Recommended Posts

ive been getting spells of depression since i started accutane for the second time. before i started my skin was worse, but i didnt get bad depression.

if i got chapped lips and dry skin bc of tane, is it logical to think my depression is from it too?

are you having suicidal ideations and did you suffer from moderate-severe depression before accutane? If you didnt have any depression before accutane, then Id definitely say its the accutane. Accutane gave me nonstop suicidal ideations also. It was aweful

It is a rare side effect, I didnt get depressed while on it, and I have three friends and a relative that took it and didn't get it either.

But it is something to watch out for it,

I got a some anxiety during the last month of my course, but was totally worth the clear skin

i got depressed over acne itself, not accutane. i wanted to clear up so fast and that fact i was not made me fall under depression but i tried very hard not to affect me as much. i guess it just depends on the person and/or if u've suffered from some kind of disorder before accutane.
