Accutane (isotretinoin) shares potent 5-alpha reductase inhibiting properties with finasteride and can cause a syndrome that can be apparently identical to Post Finasteride Syndrome. Reported persistent effects include libido loss, erectile dysfunction, depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, panic attacks, penile shrinkage, gynecomastia, muscle atrophy, cognitive impairment, insomnia, severely dry skin and tinnitus. The condition often has a radical and extreme impact on victims and their families, causing job losses, the breakup of marriages and romantic relationships, whilst also being linked to suicides.
Independent writer Louisa Cavell is right now seeking contact from Accutane users who suffer persistent side effects. If you are affected by the lasting or post-drug effects of Accutane, you can get in contact with Louisa by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you may be aware, Finasteride also received an MHRA safety update regarding suicidal ideation and severe depression last year, adding to the steadily materialising picture of a similar and extremely unusual clinical profile shared by these persistent drug-induced conditions. This link has also been recognised in a recent publication in the International Journal of Risk & Safety in Medicine regarding 300 cases of enduring sexual dysfunction following the use of antidepressants, finasteride and isotretinoin.
