If you're still on Accutane then i'd advise you get off it. Hair loss is a common side effect that may or may not become a long term issue. There are quite a few threads on this issue. Maybe read up and then weigh up the decision on whether it's worth the risk to continue treatment or not.

Best wishes in your decision, Shantelle

You mean uncommon side effect, theres well over 20 million that taken it, and only some odd thousand that get hair shedding, and less than that that get hair loss, either way if your scared stop taking it and see if it improves
