Question: For 2 weeks I haven’t been able to sleep without medication, it started on a night that I thought i was just gonna have a bad night. I was in bed trying to sleep and I couldn’t. This is very unlike me, I’m normally able to sleep with ease.
This got me thinking that I’m probably going to have anxiety problems again, like i did exactly a year earlier. This bothered me a lot as when i was going through that time, it was terrible and I didn’t want it to happen again.My mother and I got fed up of it, so we decided to visit a psychiatrist, I told him a bunch of stuff like how I’ve been feeling, I said quite normal until this happened. I told him about my sleeping problems and he asked me a few more questions and he nearly came to a conclusion until I told him about the accutane i had been taking for 5-ish months and recently increased my dose. He said straight away that that’s it. I was sorta speechless.Which brings me back to my case the year before, I was on minocycline hydrochloride, which just blew my mind. I never ever had any anxiety problems, or troubles sleeping until I started my courses of different acne medication.The main point that I’m trying to make is I can’t sleep and I think my circadian rhythm has been erased. Is this possible and is it reversible? Please easy my mind because the less I know just unsettles me even further and gives me more anxiety.I am definitely off of the accutane. if anyone out there has experienced this and you know it was caused by accutane, just please tell me something. What did you do and how did you do it? Thanks-HH
