Memory Retention Issue

Hello :)

I've been taking isotretinoin 20mg/day for about 1.5 months. My skin has been clearing up great.

However, over last few days i've felt that my memory retention (while studying for end of semester exams) has not been up to par. Is this a normal side effect that will pass when I finish the isotretinoin course or should I cease taking the medication immediately?

Appreciate all suggestions, thanks.

I felt a huge loss of concentration and memory problems about 3 months into my treatment.

I quit the Accutane a couple months ago, and I still have some issues with memory. I had to quit my job due to my inability to concentrate. I feel like the symptoms are slightly better, but I do not work anymore so I can't tell completely. I do feel less fuzzy, however.

I don't feel that this is life-threatening or urgent, but if it becomes too much to handle, you should quit the drug.
