Accutane

May I ask how old you are? I'm a 50 year old female, and my acne sounds like the exact same kind as yours. Considering Accutane again, since I'm just fed up and can't tolerate Spiro. First course, when I was 25, put me in remission for over 15 years. Thanks!

Blood Clot
I am on Metoprolol Succinate, 25 mg twice a day for BP control. My pulse can go down to the 50's but it is mostly between 60 and 80 during the 12 hours till next dose. I recently had an eschemic stroke and I am wondering if it contributed to the clot, along with Hydrochlorothiazide I was taking.
