My 17 year old daughter was on accutane for approximately 3 weeks with good results. We found out she need surgery so the dermatologist took her off the accutane unit 4 weeks post op. She began the accutane again this Thursday, complained of a headache on Thursday evening, Friday, Saturday and by Sunday night the headache was severe and is continuting today (Monday evening). She was even unable to go to school. She has not had any accutane since Saturday evening (was on 40 mg 2 times/day on Thurs, Fri, Sat.). Would this severe headache be from the accutane and should it have continued this long? She had no headache with the accutane when she had 3 weeks of the medication before her surgery.
