So far, Accutane has treated me well. My acne is clearing up which is AMAZING. But I’ve been suffering with some side effects already. There’s, of course, the super dry cracked lips, the dry sunburnt feeling skin and the muscle soreness. But I’ve been having these horrible chest pains as of recent…maybe in the past 3 days or so. I’m not sure if it’s accutane related or not.
As far as the mental side effects, I haven’t really noticed my depression getting worse. I’m having a lot of trouble concentrating or remembering things. And I also don’t have much of an appetite. I’ve also noticed that my body dismorphia is getting a lot worse. I don’t know if I’ve gained weight or if just my view has changed. That probably has nothing to do with the accutane.>>
