chemo fatigue vs. accutane fatigue

Recommended Posts

My boyfriend is receiving chemotherapy right now as I am on my accutane (day 17)

He's always sleepy but I feel like I'm falling asleep more often then him... even at he hospital.

I started taking anti depressants to try to see if that helps, he's always saying that he should be the lazy one not me. Is it me being lazy, am I thinking that it makes me tired and I'm over reacting? Please help, I don't want to be the bad lazy girlfriend. I just want to know if it really makes you this tired. :think:

Trust me, it's the Accutane. I'm just finishing up month 3 and I am always tired, to the point where I can't even stay awake driving home from work. When I was at school last semester I'd go to bed at 11ish and wake up at 4:30 and I was never tired. Now I get twice as much sleep and I can't stay awake. It sucks but hopefully the side effects will all be worth it in the end. Good Luck!
