Months ago I suffered from dp as a result of a bad experience with marijuana. I've been basically 100% since, I'll never smoke again but I've returned to drinking alcohol and haven't had any problems. I do, however, suffer from quite severe acne and was considering accutane as an option. The issue is I've heard side effects can include mental health issues, primarily depression although I think I read one case study where a woman developed dp-like symptoms from acne medication which subsided a few days after ceasing treatment. Does anyone know anything about this topic?
Accutane and dp

Instead of accutane I took a 4-month course of antibiotics and that solved my acne. I was supposed to go for another month but I stopped it due to DP, just incase they were related.
Again, not to say it will 100% make it worse, but I would stay away from accutane with DP.

Accutane is a grotesquely neurotoxic chemotherapy drug not suitable for human or subhuman consumption imo.
DP should be the least of your concerns when assessing the extensive list of adverse and possibly life altering (side) effects of Accutane.
In this context you're probably better off just marinating your face in sulphuric acid for a couple of days tbh, but i obviously wouldn't recommend that either.
I would consider other treatments instead. Or better yet, just wait it out. It usually clears up.
