I took Accutane when I was 15 years old,for severe acne. I took it for 6
months, starting at 0.5mg per kg per day and going up to 1mg per kg per day.
I’ve recently read some reports on the internet which claim that Accutane
can lead to the premature fusion of the growth plates in teenagers and
younger patients, which stunts their growth.
I’m worried about this becuase I feel that I haven’t grown since taking
Accutane. I’m still 5’7.
I’m unsure of whether this was a result of Accutane or whether I just
naturally stopped growing.
Therefore I’m looking to hear from the experiences of anyone else who took
Accutane as a teenager or preteen.
Did you grow in height at all ( even a cm or so) during and after taking
How many months did you take Accutane for and what dosage were you put
I hope you can appreciate this issue of considerable concern to me, so any
help you can give me would be great or if you know of anyone who took
Accutane as a teenager or kid, that would be great too.
accutane will not do that
so do not worry
accutane just may make some bone pain and joint pain during your
treatment but will not affect your bone growth
