    I took Accutane one and a half years ago for two months and have had severe body, muscle, joint, tendon pain all over ever since. Even though I stopped it at the two month mark my symptoms just keep getting worse. Are there any suggestions for me?

    Hi there,

    I've just started taking a third course of accutane after my dermatologist told me the first two courses weren't enough.

    Have noticed some straining in vision and head pressure.

    Does anybody with sight problems here believe that accutane was the direct cause?

    Best,

    Jess

  • roaccutane and cmt

    Hi. I have cmt (very mild at the moment - likely cmt1a - awaiting genetic testing results which take almost a year where I live). I have fairly bad acne and have tried antibiotics on and off but they haven't cured it. I am thinking of asking for roaccutane and was wondering if it is safe to use if you have cmt. Has anyone any experience of this and did you take a low dose?
    Thanks fiona

    I was on Accutane treatment in summer of 1994. It is 2017 and I have pterygium in both eyes. I am not able to read with my right eye. This eye is beyond help despite a surgery in ca. 2010 to remove the tissue growth. My right eye changed shape as a consequence of inflammation, healing and development of scar tissue (according to an ophthalmologist) resulting in the inability to focus. My left eye still works but for how long?. The only treatment I use is eye drops for dry eyes and sunglasses.
    It is good to see that finally, the connection between Accutane and pterygium has been made.

    My teenage daughter was one a 6 month program for Accutane She stopped the medicine in March 2016 and was diagnosed with Costochondritis in April 2016. A year later it's still giving her problems where it sometimes prevents her from sports. She's been checked out top to bottom and is healthy. Her acne is back full force and I don't know what to tell her. We've tried everything and there's no way she going back on Accutane. Any advice is greatly appreciated
