  1. Anybody Take Accutane?

    I was on Accutane on and off between my junior and senior year of high school. I didn't have any symptoms of gluten intolerance until I started taking it. The symptoms I had are not ones I remember being explained to me by my dermatologist (digestive type problems). I had no idea what was going on with my body until earlier this year when I discovered I had a gluten intolerance. I do not know if it is the Accutane that caused my gluten intolerance. However if I knew then what I knew now (that acne wasn't just bad luck, and I could have fixed it by eating a better diet) I would not have taken it. Honestly I was just so excited at the prospect of my acne disappearing and being a normal high schooler. It is not something that should be given to a short sighted 16 year old girl, regardless.
