Yes, Accutane can cause elevated cholesterol levels (please view under metabolic).
Yes accutane raises your cholesterol levels. My derm told me that generally people who are prone to high cholesterol ( runs in your family) are more likely to see a jump in levels. I'm also on accutane and my triglycerides are crazy high, but they do go back down once you stop the medication
