Accutane Month 3
My son is 15. I am concerned he has been taking 40 mg per day of Accutane for 3 months. Will it stunt his growth?
Severe acne?: I am assuming he has severe acne and is followed by Dermatology. They typically treat with accutane for 6 months at a time. I am assuming they reviewed the risks with accutane, I am not aware that accutane will stunt your growth, and most likely at 15 he already has had his growth spurt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am taking accutane (40mg) since 3 months and i have to take for few days zithromax and diflucan, (fluconazole) is there any interaction between these medicine?
Small: Accutane does not interact with either of these medications. There is a slight risk of the Zithromax and Diflucan (fluconazole) interacting, but it is low in someone young like yourself, and if those two medications were prescribed by the same doctor, it is not worth questioning. If they were prescribed by two separate doctors, alert them to determine whether they wish to have you take both. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Three months ago i stopped taking accutane. I am now taking a gainer (carnivore mass) which i think is making me break-out. Should i stop taking it?
Probably not: Acne caused by dietary changes is largely a myth. The most significant cause of acne is testosterone, which is much, much higher in your teens and early 20's than any other time in your life. If you're breaking out more recently, it may be simply due to weather changes ; the fact that people aren't in the sun as much after summer is over. ...Read more
Will my baby have birh defects? I got pregnant three months after my last dose of Accutane. I ionly took two Accutane
Negligible risk: The half life of Accutane (time for half to be gone from your body) is about a day. By three months out there is none in your system to cause a problem. There is no data suggesting a higher frequency of birth defects in women who took the med at times unrelated to an actual pregnancy. ...Read more

Hi I'm taking accutane for four months now because I had acne then I stopped it since I stopped getting acne but now after 2 months I started getting acne again so my dermatologist suggested me to take for another three months along with chemical peels..
Accutane use!!!: You must be very very careful about the use of Accutane. It is a very potent teratogen (causes serious birth defects) even when you are not taking it because it can be stored in your body's fat and then released. I don't know if you are sexually active but you must must use at least two very effective forms of contraception. Be prepared to consider having an abortion for a malformed fetus!! ...Read more

I am currently on my fourth week of accutane. I've had three cystic like pimples on my forehead that will go down but then inflame again, why?
Continue accutane: 3 weeks treatment with Accutane is not enough, you need to continue Accutane for a few more weeks to see the real effect of medicine. Try to keep your face clean and dry. Hope your pimples will go away. If still no improvement, then consult your dermatologist for more treatment. ...Read more
