Swollen Lips on Isotretinoin


I have been on Isotretinion 60mg for nearly two months now. The only real side effect I've had (other than the obvious dry skin etc.) is swollen lips. I was just wondering if other people who have had swollen lips while taking this drug... do the swollen lips return to normal after finishing the course of drugs or will I be stuck like this?

I've alread PM'd the poster, (and I'm probably not the only one), but for anyone else reading this...

Swollen lips from any medication could be a sign of allergy and is extremely dangerous, could possibly even be fatal.

It's called Anaphylaxis.

Always take caution with any reactions you experience when taking a new medication and discuss them with your Dr.

You can always read the patient info that comes with medication to see which are common side effects and which are uncommon reactions that require immediate attention.

Swollen lips, face, neck and/or throat require immediate attention, always.

I'm not saying be paranoid, just BE CAREFUL!!
