Please Read: Dark Circles Under Eyes

Hello, please help me cause i'm freaking out,

am male, 24, atletic and been on accutane for about 2 months now at 48mg a day (about 0,70 mg/kg/day)

started getting these dark rings under my eyes, like i broke my nose or something,

this message goes out to the people who have had this:


i've used the search button extensively and came up with some results, but all scattered and almost nobody replying about it after their treatment, I am looking for input from people who have this and what they do about it but more specially i am looking for people who HAD this and are now off accutane, did it go away or not? in what degree?

please leave a small comment about how it develloped with you

ps: talked to my dermatologist and he doesn't have a clue

I really didnt notice this when i was on accutane but it might be the skin thinning effect. I am pretty sure that would go away once you complete your course based on the lack of people who experience this effect. In the meantime, get enough sleep and remember to drink lots of water.

Mister V,

I am on month 4 of accutane, actually Claravis which is a generic, but I've been getting dark circles under my eyes too. I've always had dark circles but nothing like this. Anyways I just put it together that it's from accutane and I'm reading all these blogs, and people have been saying mixed things. Some people say the circles went away and others have said they haven't seen any change and they've been off it for two years. I'm considering calling my derm and possibly getting off of it. Did your dark circles get better? What did you do??
