Mood worsening on accutane

I’ve been on accutane for just over two months . I can feel my mood worsening every day, I wake up feeling like I don’t want to go anywhere or do anything. I know this is bad but I don’t want to be taken off accutane as I know nothing else will help my skin! I don’t think I’m depressed it’s just mood swings , especially being a woman who is also on birth control I am bound to be extra hormonal. Has anyone else experienced this?

@clo223  Yes, it is very common to have low mood.

I don’t recommend Accutane, because if your purpose is to shrink your sebaceous glands permanently, you will also change other precious things in your body, and this is going to bring you a lot of trouble, even long after you take it.
