My Accutane is Making Me Sick
I was just wondering if anyone has gotten stomach pains after eating while taking Accutane. Right after I eat I feel sick, and I've been feeling dizzy and I've had a lot of headaches. This is my second time taking it, and the first time I had NO side effects and it was a miracle. Then 3 years later my acne came back with a vengeance. Now I have all the side effects in the world. I feel like I have an ulcer or something. WTF???

Hi,

I was on Accutane and become totally ill.  I gained weight and the rest of my skin (except the oily part) become so dry, I thought my skin was going to fall off.  Also Accutane damages the liver...Too much Vitamin A (or any vitamin for that matter) is too much.  Try an anti-candida health regime.  It helped me a lot.

Best of luck.

Hi I had accutane last year and I have severe stomach and digestive issues. I cannot eat lactose, fructose and gluten! Every time I eat anything I get bloated right away and feel ill for the rest of the day. I have to eat such a limited diet to avoid all these issues. During my dosage I had dry skin, more digestive issues, increased anxiety and stress. I just have the most sensitive stomach and have had many blood tests but they come up fine it's so frustrating
