My Accutane nightmare I wish that I could turn back the clock ten years to the day I was prescribed Accutane for my adult acne. I would have run screaming had I known that it would change my life forever. I believe that its use caused the debilitating illnesses that today make my life a living hell. I suffer with Fibromyalgia, IBS, and chronic fatigue syndrome along with an addiction to Tramadol, a supposedly non- addictive drug. The withdrawals from this drug were never mentioned which include horrible nausea, insomnia and terrible depression. I should mention that my dermatologist never explained that my gut would be stripped of all bacteria some of which is VITAL to good health. It ruined my plans, my dreams, my life.
