I took Accutane a few years ago when I was 24-ish, and at the time I had absolutely no sign of hair loss. I had mild acne with oily skin that would always look messy so I decided to finally try the strongest product out there - Accutane.
It's a ridiculously strong drug. Within 2 months, my skin was glowing and perfect. But then the acne came back. I also lost SIGNIFICANT hair during that time because Accutane is just a crazy, strong drug. I didn't notice the hair loss at all. It was the last thing on my mind at age 24 with a full head of hair but one day I saw my reflection in a mirror and I saw my scalp in plain site. My hair fully grew back afterwards though.
Make sure you're conscious of depression symptoms, because I never had depression or even knew what it felt like - but while on Accutane, it subtly creeps up on you. I had to remind myself that it's not ME, it's the damn drug that's making me feel down. Also, it gave me dry lips, something I still have till this day.
Would I do it again? Nope, unless my acne was extremely SEVERE.
Otherwise, my latest findings prove to be more promising - with Acne, start taking probiotic supplements and more importantly - foods. Learn how to make Kefir and start taking it regularly. Clean up the good/bad bacteria within your gut.
And also - Davey Jones is spot on about avoiding Dairy products. You may not want to give up Dairy products, but you should google Factory Farming and get a better understanding of how cows are raised/treated/slaughtered to make dairy products. It's no wonder that dairy products cause so many inflammations in so many people but much of it goes unnoticed.
