I did have increased levels of cholesterol the first time I took accutane. I don't remember the specific numbers, but it was enough for my doctor to consider taking me off. However I was able to finish up my treatment and my cholesterol returned to normal.

Unfortunately I'm on my second round of accutane about a year and half after I finished my first, and my doctor decided to prescribe me crestor as a precaution before I started taking the accutane again, and this has helped keep it down.
