Accutane and Blood Clots?

Recommended Posts

Hi forum folks! I am brand new and have a question... I am 33, have moderate acne all over my body (all types: cystic, nodules, blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, pustules--whatever you call them, I have them!)

I recently heardabout Accutane and have done some research. Unfortunately, I suffered a blood clot about 3 years ago from taking oral contraceptivevs (YAZ, to be exact) and was informed that I can NEVER take any OC ever again (which sucks in iteslf (-; ) In addition to the many side affects and in spite of the amazing results people seem to have, I would like to know what everyone has heard about Accutane and Blood Clots. Has anyone ever had one? I am at wits end and there is nothing that helps.

I did just read that Accutane is some form of Vitamin A so I am uping my Vitamin A intake, hoping it will work.

Thanks for any help....
