Hi Beaute29 - probably stands for beautiful!!! I have taken accutane and claveris with a large majority of the problems you have. First thing you should do is to make certain that you have a very knowledgeable doc. Some of the side affects can be very serious with both drugs.With accutane my
liver was damaged but after a few years I am ok; I also suffered IBS - irritable/inflammatory bowel disease which is ok, and DEPRESSION!! This is the hardest to kick. But at least getting somewhat stable... With the claravis you can get serious skin issues - ACNE like bumps, tone changes; get dry eyes,dry nose,dry mouth/throat; and I was very tired all the time - really fatigued. But after getting off of these I started to notice differences in some areas right away. I know that you will overcome this, you sound so desperate but I will try to keep helping/talking to you if you like?
