Other side effects of Accutane

A few weeks ago, I had a friend start on Accutane. He had moderate cystic acne, and asked his dermatologist to put him on Accutane. His dermatologist put him on 60mg/Accutane daily.

My friend had some of the common side effects, like dry lips, fragile skin, but then started noticing other symptoms.

In his second week, he began noticing that his nails were growing much longer than usually do. Two weeks after that, his dad got fired from work. His dad had never been laid off from work before he started taking Accutane. In his 2nd month, his brother was killed in a collission with a semitruck. His brother had a perfect driving record before taking Accutane.

Is Accutane worth it? Sure, it might clear your skin up, but at what cost? I don't know about you guys, but I'd rather have a few pimples then send my brother head-on in front of a semitruck.

the fact that his dad got fired and his brother died has nothing to do with accutane.

Uhm, I think that's the OP's point.
