Isotretinoin causing significant water retention/ swelling in face and abdomen

Recommended Posts

I've been on accutane for just over a week. I started on 20mg/day and pretty much the next day i was significantly bloated in the my stomach and face. Since i went up to 40mg/day it seems to have gotten worse, i look like I've gained 4kg or so! 

Has anyone else had this problem, particularly so early on and how long did it take to go away whilst continuing with the medication?
