Post Accutane and High Cholesterol

Recommended Posts

My 22 year old daughter was on accutane for just a little more than 6 months. Worked wonders-and has been off of it now since the end of September. Her cholesterol was quite high while on it and she was recently retested and it is still in the 250 range. Can anyone tell me how long it should take for cholesterol levels to return to normal? Should the numbers have come down by now or will it take longer? Thanks for your help.

my derm said just eat healthy (vegetables not high fatty foods) and exercising will help lower your triglycerides some

but i think they symptoms go away within 6 months after you take it

my triglycerides were 311 and went as high as 400ish

but yeah don't worry they'll eventually go down
