Accutane Side effects-please read

 First of all, sorry for my english. Iam 28 years old and from Germany.
i Took accutane for 1 year in a Low dose from 2011-2012.
after i quit accutane due the Side Effects ( Depression, burning Skin, joint panes, hair loss), 6 months After (!!) i quit i Start getting hot flashes Every day..... Its like rosacea. I hot this since 3 years now and i keep my research to fight this issue. I have to quit my Job as a barkeeper because i cant tolerate warm rooms. 

I find some Studies that accutane reduce Plasma Levels of Folic Acid and b12. 

So so my questions is:

 has anyone tried Folic Acid or b12 to fix the Side Effects?

has anyone sucessfully cure his hot flashes After accutane? I cant life with that and it realy make me depreessed.... Thank you for all informations.

the Other Thing Is, i Found Magnesium very helpful, but the Reliefe only Last for a few days:-(( next Thing i try Is a "liver cleanse" with dandelion Root and plenty of water.

thanks, Dominik.
