    Accutane is a prescription medication that contains the active ingredient isotretinoin, a derivative of vitamin A called a retinoid. This medication is indicated to reduce or eliminate the development of skin lesions associated with a severe form of acne called nodular acne. Accutane side effects in men are typically the same as those experienced by women, though women are also at risk of developing pregnancy or menstrual complications.

    SKIN OR NAIL CHANGES Men taking Accutane may notice changes to their skin or nails. The skin across the body may appear unusually dry and can begin to peel, itch or crack, RxList reports. A man's fingernails or toenails may also appear dry or brittle and may break or crumble easily. The skin along a man's gum line may also appear irritated or inflamed and can begin to bleed.

    DIZZINESS OR FATIGUE Unusual episodes of dizziness or lightheadedness may arise in men treated with Accutane. Affected men may appear unbalanced or unstable while standing or walking. Increased fatigue may also occur, leading to problems remaining focused or attentive during daily activities.

    JOINT OR BODY PAIN Uncomfortable sensations of pain may develop throughout a man's joints or body during treatment with Accutane. These side effects may lead to increased weakness or fatigue in certain men, which can cause difficulty moving about normally.

    FLULIKE SYMPTOMS Men receiving treatment with this medication may experience flu-like symptoms, including fever, body aches, chills, fatigue or diminished appetite, RxList reports. Affected patients should contact a doctor if these side effects occur, as these symptoms may also be indicative of an alternate medical problem, such as an infection.

    MOOD CHANGES Abnormal mood changes can occur in men taking Accutane. Men who experience depression, hallucinations, aggressive behavior, difficulty concentrating, insomnia or suicidal thoughts during treatment with this medication require immediate medical care, RxList advises.

    RESPIRATORY TRACT INFECTION Male patients taking Accutane may be at an increased risk of developing a respiratory tract infection as a side effect of treatment, warns the FDA. Symptoms of a respiratory tract infection include breathing difficulties, nasal dryness or congestion and chest discomfort. Men who develop a respiratory tract infection should contact a doctor as additional medication may be necessary to resolve infection symptoms.

    HAIR THINNING The hair across a man's scalp may begin to appear unusually sparse or thin during Accutane treatment, Drugs.com reports. Such side effects are temporary and normal hair regrowth typically occurs once treatment with Accutane ends.

    UPSET STOMACH The most common gastrointestinal complications include nausea, vomiting, heartburn and diarrhea, according to PDRhealth. Men who develop severe or persistent upset stomach symptoms, notice blood in their stools or vomit should consult a physician immediately.
    Are you talking about most common side effects or you talking about every possible side effect as remote as they may be that's written on the leaflet inside the packet? Most of those symptoms are possible with many of the natural supps we swear by... I probably should have mentioned I've taken it before for 6 months straight... Looking at that Interderm at the moment as was mentioned earlier just out of curiosity, but I'll go straight to Accutane if I want a guaranteed product... If you go by leaflets, apparently anti-diarrhea meds can cause diarrhea as a least common side effect...

    I do know that many men have experienced hair thinning and MPB, and that accutane can cause mood changes and depression. As for every single one of those side effects, I don't know how prominent they are or how many men have actually experienced the other listed side effects.

  4. It can f*** with testosterone levels, libido etc, even after ceasing use. With that said, alot of people have used it with success, but personally I wouldn't touch the stuff...

    Yeah that's what I'm sayin, it should not be a "go-to" for a quick simple acne fix. It can be detremental to a persons health, especially males

    this was back in the 90's, and he did use chapstick.. it affects others differently.

    I'm just saying it should be used as a last resort.. and only if you habe severe cystic acne.

  8. pantothenic acid is working wonders for me! it's all I use now. 500 mg a day is all it takes.

  9. Try Acnedren by Black Lion Research . It's works great . I've used it on my last two epistane cycles.
