I have a big problem. Since taking Isotretinoin I have hyperhidrosis (extreme sweating). I took 10mg a day for over a year. The acne disappeared but the extreme sweating has not. At temperatures of 15 degrees, I'm already extremely sweaty and at forehead and back. Summer vacation is totally excluded.
I was with many doctors but nobody could help me. Anti-sweating medications like Vagantin, Oxybutinin and Clonidine help me only a little and have too many side effects.

I have also telephoned with the manufacturer of Isotretinoin, but no one knew any advice.

Can someone help me? I do not know how to live with this. I have already stop Isotretinoin for more than a year...


thank you!

Haven't heard of this problem for Accutane personally.  Consult your derm?
