Roaccutane Dry Eye Causes and Reviews


You may only think of tears as those salty drops that fall from your eyes when you cry. Actually, your tears clean your eyes every time you blink. Tears also keep your eyes moist, which is important for your vision.

Tear glands produce tears, and tear ducts carry the tears from the glands to the surface of your eye. Problems with the tear system can include too many tears, too few tears, or problems with the tear ducts. Treatment of the problem depends on the cause.


Roaccutane Dry Eye Reviews

Mon, 28 Feb 2011
60mg 4 month course on Roaccutane for Acne I'm on my last pack of Roaccutane now, skin has had it's spell of bad break outs and clearing up again. I believe the acne does worsen at the beginning of a course. Hopefully all cleared by the time i finish! Side effects... Occassional mood swings - getting very angry over the mildest of things without any rational explanation. Although I can be fairly moody anyway the tablets definitely exaggerated them. Migranes and blurry vision - I do occassionally need to wear glasses for reading but the tablets i believe or the migranes caused by them would effect my vision terribly, especially in one eye in particular. Dryness - A common side effect I believe. Dry skin, chapped lips, Dry Eyes. If i didn't moisturise my eyes before bed, they would swell and dry up by the morning! very painful. And for the girlies... I highlighted only a few bits in my hair with bleach and it came out like chewing gum! I have tough hair which has developed under bleach for over an hour and hacked it...this time it was only 30 minutes! Definitely due to Roaccutane! So haven't bothered to dye my hair until I'm off them. Another side effect...brittle nails, dry flaking around nails. Skin can become very raw and painful. Lips are constantly shedding! Feel dehydrated often and headaches are frequent. I believe swollen glands are another side effect, my salivary gland did swell up which has never happened to me before, related to tablets I don't know! Disappeared after a few days. Tips... Moisturise every morning and night! Carry a lip blam everywhere. Recommend Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. It heals up the skin on the face incl lips! Amazing. Drink PLENTY of water Use moisturising eye drops Exercise for mood swings or long walks, do things that you know cheer you up!- make close family and friends aware of mood swings! Girlies - avoid bleaching hair and hot oil treatment to keep it moisturised...only wash roots of hair and condition all the ay through!
