Well one of the possible side effects of acutane is a rise in liver function tests. That can lead to nauseaand loss of appetite. I would definitely recommend you getting your liver functions tested . For nausea you may take pepto-bismol available OTC.

hope it answered your query.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
