    I should add, accutane resulted in huge weight loss for me. I was 83kg when I started, now I am more like 78 kg. I believe this drug is potentially extremely dangerous.

    accutane and depression
    Does depression start the first month of Accutane or does it hit after you have been on the medication for a period of time? Anyone had experience with this.
