Hello, I'm going into month 4 of Accutane. I am on a much higher dosage than my first round. I'm 120 lbs and on 80 mg a day. I was said to have TMJ (my jaw was unalligned before on tane), but I never had any side effects. I have an appt with the ENT on Monday the 26th. It just seems to be popping now more than ever.

Also, I had a terrible cold/earache this winter, and ever since thing wierd things have happened. IE: I couldn't hear out of one ear, that went away and now I have some distortion when around loud speakers and whatnot.

Coudl this extra sensativity be due to accutane usage?

I have had chronic TMJ for 2 years now. There is no doubt in my mind that my TMJ was either caused or worsened by taking Accutane as a teenager. I took Accutane for one year at age 17 (when ear clicking and popping commenced), now have chronic TMJ at age 23. Beware of this side effect.

Symptoms include:

- ear fuzziness

- pain in face/jaw

- dizziness

- etc.
