Exclamation Has anyone ever grown after taking accutane?

My brother took accutane for severe acne when he was 14 going on 15, for about 8 months at a normal dosage of around 1mg/kg or something like that.
He's just turned 18 now and is concerned that he has not grown since taking the drug.
We've looked around on the internet and have found spontaneous reports by some people who say that accutane can stunt the growth of growing teenagers who are on the drug.
My question is to all other people who may have used accutane or known someone who used accutane, did you grow at all in height after taking the drug?

I would really appreciate as many replies as possible, thanks.
