I wish i saw this before i took accutane. I took it in about nov 2009 and it ruined my life. I hope your hair has gotten better, but I doubt it. Don't let people tell you that an oil or something will help or that it's you.... It's Accutane. This drug should not be allowed on the market. It literally ruined my life. I know that people that haven't experienced side effects think of everyone else as hypochondriacs, but that's simply not the case. My eyes sunk, i have dandruff and flaky dry skin, wrinkles around my mouth and eyes, stomach issues, bleeding rectum.. No one wants to waste their time posting shit like this. It's bs that this drug is allowed to be prescribed. Someone should be held accountable. FDA needs to either make this for the absolute worst acne ever (life threatening) or take it off the market completely, because for people like me that were prescribed this for mild acne it ruined everything about my life

Try coconut oil. Put it on your scalp every night and wash it off in the morning. Should improve hair within a few months. I hope it helps and I am very sorry about what you're going through.

she should not have given me such a high dose - considering what my legal options are.
