: Ya, thank you for the feedback, the main thing I am worried about it the stiffnes of the joints and muscles. I am very very active and I don't want it to interfere. Has anyone had these problems? Also the fusing together of growth plates making it hard to grow? Thanks again.
Your hair can fall out while on accutane and even after you are off. I am experiencing this right now and I have been off of accutane a year in January. Please look at every other option before you go on this nasty drug. It works for some but the risk of being bald? Screw that. I am a female so it is is hard for me. I have hair but it gets thinner and thinner everday. It's scarey. I've went to doctors too and they have confirmed that it is the accutane. i'm not sure how long this will go on but if it persists I will be a very unhappy bald girl--anonymous (if you want to hear more accutane horror stories about side effects go to hairsite.com.)
