I'm Paul. I'm new to these forums but am so glad that I found it.
My question is for anyone who took Accutane as a teenager or a child.
I myself took the drug for 8 months at a dose of 1-1.5mg per kg per day, when I was 14 years old.(around 60mg)
I have recently become quite concerned about some reports that I have read that Accutane can lead to the premature closing of the growth plates in pediatric patients.
I'm conerned becuase I don't feel that I grew much at all after taking Accutane, but am unsure as to whether this was just natural ( becuase I kinda started puberty a bit early) or whether it was indeed a horrid adverse side effect of Accutane.
So my question to anyone else who has been on this drug as a teenager or child, did you grow at all in height during and after taking Accutane?
What age were you when you took Accutane and for how long were you on the drug? Also, could you please state what dosage you were on?
Are any of you aware of anyone you know of who has experienced this side effect?
I'd really appreciate it if as many of you guys could let me know of your experiences.
