What role do you think the accutane is playing? This all started as I was finishing five months of accutane. The dry eyes and puffy eyelids have been going on for a month now. Will it eventually get better as my body flushes out the accutane?
The prednisone is a oral tablet but I haven't filled the prescription yet. Should I be nervous at all?
I am ready to accept your answer and I thank you for the response!
One more question, is it possible to bring down the swelling of the lacrimal gland only to have it go right back up? The prednisone is a dosepak tapered for 7 days. I believe he said something like 60mg but I'm not 100% sure.
I am an active male, 6'0, 225 lbs. So if it is 60mg for 7 days, that seems to weak?
I also took the accutane for acne, which is completely gone!
