How long does it take for Accutane side effects to subside?

Recommended Posts

I've been on Accutane since November 3rd and my last day is April 20th. Overall I've seen lots of improvement but the side effects are scaring me.

I have the common dry lips and nose one. I sometimes have chronic fatigue but I do have the depression side effect. I don't have it terribly but I do have it. I am also experiencing the decreased nightvision side effect.

How long does it take for these side effects to go away once treatment is over? Thanks alot in advance.

the general dryness goes pretty quickly, u should see major improvements after a week or 2

I am not sure about the others I never had any of those side effects

My side effects (mood swings, depression) went away within a few weeks of going off accutane. It amazes me how much happier I am now that I am off the medication, and my skin is still perfect!
