Patient :I have been prescribed accutane and I am just into my first week. I am taking 40 mg once per day. I have noticed that I am having mild abdominal discomfort. I have taken the necessary blood test and everything was normal. I want to continue with the medication but I do not want to do any harm either. Should I discontinue with the medication? If not is there something I can take to easy the discomfort?
