Taking a antibiotic (Minocycline) should be ok at the same time as Accutane right? The doc gave me two Rx's one accutane and one Mino. The mino for only a month to help with these nasty infected cysts that have been developing for a few days now.
I have a pak of Accutane from 2 years ago, when I was going to take accutane but never did, the expiry date was last month (Feb) but my doc said its ok to use it still. is it?
Does Accutane cause hair loss? I have thin hair as is and don't really wanna shave my head.
Another thing about hair/scalp, does accutane affect the scalp too? I am using Rogaine now for a month and now Folligen on my hair line. will my scalp be too irritated while on accutane to use these products? they do irritate a bit by themselves.
If your doctor gave you the prescription it should be fine.. I was on doxycycline for the first 2 months of my treatment.
Im not too sure about the shelf life of accutane, but if your doctor says its ok I guess you can go for it.
About the hair loss, some people have noticed thinning of hair, I havent really noticed. Occasionally after playing around with my hair ill see a few peices just sitting there. But im not balding or anything.
Anything irritating will most likely be too irritating on accutane. It make all your skin very dry and sensitive. So Id say yes, they will aggravate your skin.
