I've been on accutane for about 6 days and have not been having bowel movements for a few days. Yesterday I kind of did, but it was really dry. Could this be because this medicine is dehydrating? Is there anything I can do to fix this? FYI I'm taking the generic, claravis.

Yup! I even had some blood in my stools on my first round of accutane in 2005. I freaked out and called my derm asap! She said that it was just dry and to drink more water. I did and it never happened again. :) I would recommend that you take vitamin e capsules and also fish oil. This should help with hydrating you.
