Worried about getting Pseudo tumor Cerebri

I've been on Myorisan aka Accutane for a month and a half now. 20 mg first month and 40mg second month, and I weigh 150 pounds. My symptoms have gotten worse since being out on 40mg. I've been getting headaches, nausea, dry eyes, and a pressure feeling behind my eyes, I also find that my vision is off, but I think it might be this new anxiety medicine I'm taking or I need a new prescription for my glasses. I'm a bit of a hypochondriac so I've pretty much convinced myself that I either have it or am going to get it and I'm still taking it because I know I'm a bad hypochondriac. Should I actually be worried? Or when should I really worry? This idea of getting a pseudo tumor cerebri has controlled my thoughts for a while, but Im so determined to have a clear face.

It'd'd honestly be best to check with your doctor if you're experiencing that many side effects. Could be anxiety, could be your new meds, could be the Accutane - it's hard to know for sure! None of us will be able to tell for certain.
