Accutane

Reviewed by Kelly on

My husband was on Accutane in the early 80's and i chose to go on it about 8-10 years ago. I had hairloss (which my hair is considerably thinner than it was before Accutane), dry/ cracking lips, dry eyes (My eyes are still dry that I have to use drops), bloody noses, I have arthritis in my neck from an injury but the rest of my bones crack constantly... and I find it interesting that we have been unable to get pregnant.. all the 21 years we've been together. This drug was so harsh that it dries everything out. I don't have the cystic painful acne anymore but I still do have constant breakouts of the regular-type acne. I'm wondering about the infertility thing and if there has been any other reports linking this to Accutane. I'm just starting to research this now...
