Im Wanting to Start Using Accutane but Im Scared About the Side Effects. What's Your Opinion?

I'm prone to having bad stomach issues with medicine so im just worried. If I just get sick for a day or 2 that's fine but if I'm going to be having problems with my stomach throughout the entire dose of accutane then I can't do that.

Accutane needs to be taken with food

When taken with food, I haven't had anyone have excessive stomach problems. So your best bet would be to eat breakfast, then take your pill. Don't take the pill before eating - take it after!
