Feb 17, 2016 · Accutane stole my daughter — angry and out of control in Mental Health

As many stories go my daughter was in High School excelling but the acne became to much. We knew the possible risks and like any drug figured if she showed any signs of the risks we would take her off. As her mental health declined we removed her from Accutane however, the mental effects continued. We went through a few years of misdiagnosis,weight gain, medications, and therapy by providers at behavioral health. She finally stabilized and discontinued all medications. Not knowing that Accutane was the cause of her mental state she put herself back on it about a year ago. After 6 months or less she took herself off due to feeling angry and out of control all the time. For the last 6 months we have watched our daughter again spiraling in a down ward mental state. Last night my wife took her into urgent care to get something started. She was prescribed the antidepressant Florentine. We are not taking her back to behavioral health with the misdiagnosis, inconsistency in providers, and the array of prescriptions. The urgent care doctor was on board with us seeing her primary care provider. My big question; Does anyone know what medication would be the best to reverse the side effects of Accutane?
