My mother took Accutane 8 years ago. About a year after she stopped, she began the become clumsy, experienced dizzy spells and blacked out. She was eventually diagnosed as having left temporal lobe seizures. (She is on Tegratol now and no longer experiences seizures.) She did not think that her Epilepsy and the Accutane had anything to do with each until last week when a friend of hers who finished her second round of Accutane (which is taken in 9 month durations) about a year ago was diagnosed with left temporal lobe epilepsy as well. We are looking for anyone else who has devolped epilepsy during or after taking Accutane. Please email me at email@example.com. Thanks.
