Not so great: Acutane can Increase your triglycerides (fats) and is generally something you have to be very cautious with since having high cholesterol in your diet (includes triglycerides) can increase your risk at developing heart disease and other metabolic dysfunction. High fats in your diet are not advisable while on Acutane.
