Yes: Accutane however has been associated with a very extensive list of possible side effects. Blood pressure and heart rate are among a number of things to monitor and watch for with this medication. It should only be presribed by a physician very accustomed to monitoring for all it's potential side effects.

Often first line is a diuretic which has proven to be very successful in preventing mortality and morbidity from htn. But beta blockers, ace inhibitors, calcium channel blockers and others are used with great results.
