Hi people,

A question about accutane has been lingering in my mind for a long time. If it can possibly cure your acne by permanently shrinking your oil glands, how does it leave everything else intact (i.e., your hair, internal organs, etc.). I’m asking this because my hair has been thinning since ive been on accutane. I’m just worried that it won’t go away. Anyone have any idea on how it only affects the oil glands?

I couldn't explain exactly how Accutane shrinks the glands but....to help you hair.....

Take Vitamin H (Biotin) while you're on 'tane'. It'll really help. Also Vit E to help with the dryness, (don't want it to be excessive), and Vit C, (to help with any local infections).

I did...and I had a pretty easy course - just finished on Saturday.
