| | Re: Accutane Makes me Nauseas
I was on Accutane for nearly a year. (10 months I think...) After the 3rd month, I was getting really moody, and I'd often feel sick to the stomach. Since it was clearing my face, I stayed with it. After the 10 months, I was so terribly depressed, to the point of near suicide. I would catch every sickness coming around, and I was also very nauseated.
Accutane has been tested, and has been proven to cause depression and other harmful side effects.
Two weeks after I got off of accutane, all the depression and sick feeling in my stomach completely left. Accutane works, I started when I was 14, and now that I'm 19, I've not had severe acne since. Yes, I've had break-outs, yes I still have perpetual blackheads on my nose, but it helped the whole Pizza face look to stay away.
However, because of the depression and other side effects, (including severely dry, cracked and bleeding skin, low immune system, and other small things,) I would not recommend it to anyone.
There's got to be a better treatement out there. Check it out online... there's tons of stories of people feeling so depressed that they are suicidal while they are taking accutane.
Be careful with that stuff. If you must take it, don't take it for longer than a couple months. It can be extremely harmful. Trust me, I went through that, and would never go back.
