I'm about 2 1/2 months into my treatment. My symptoms so far are muscle and joint soreness and fatigue. Oddly enough, dry skin hasn't really been a problem with me. I guess it's the jojoba oil doing its job.

Anyways, lately I've been having a tiny vision problem. It's almost like a slight fog over half of my pupil that comes and goes. I've never had vision problems, and I've never needed glasses or contacts. I stare at the computer a lot, so I really don't know if this is accutane related. I haven't had headcaches or dry itchy eyes. I'm afraid to tell my dermatologist because I know she'll take me off of it right away. she lowered my dosage by half when I recently told her I've been sore. What do you think I should look out for/do?

Go see a eye doctor....don't mess with your vision, Accutane is NOT worth it! Pretty face won't mean much if you can't see!

I've had the same problem, as many other people have. It's one of the side effects according to the paper that comes into the box, so it should all get back to normal once you're off Accutane.

Good luck!
