Does Accutane result in premature growth plate closure

Recommended Posts

Hi guys i am on the 2nd day of my Accutane course. The dosage prescribed was 20 mg. I have read about the many horror stories of premature growth playe closure hence I am planning to go for a x ray to check my boneage before continuing this medication. However I am worried that the 40 mg of accutane i have consumed for the past two days would have taken effect in closing my growth plate and I would never know my boneage was the same before and after I took accutane. Hence what are your guys opinion on the effect of 2 days of accutane medication on growth plates, would it close my growth plate at such early stages?

Should best as for professional opinion really with that kind of question. 

But if you're after an internet response then I would say 2 days of accutane would of done next to nothing regarding your growth plate. It's a strong drug but it takes quite awhile before there are any major changes.
