Its pretty uncommon. Just make sure you watch your stomach activities..is that the right word? ...And if there are any wacky changes, call your derm. Keep yourself well hydrated, eat right, eat fiber- hang ten and be cool.. Everything will be smooth sailing..dont worry about the bad stuff.

lol i would say heck anything is possible with Accutane, but most of the side-effects are VERY rare, like 1-2% if that might get symptoms... and you are monitored by your derm, and if anything bad is happening ... just stop. JUST STOP. and you'll go back to normal.
