I’ve been suffering with what I believe are the side effects of the drug Accutane for almost 25 years. Whilst it has affected me mentally, the physical symptoms I would say are worse. I keep getting injuries that don’t heal and live with chronic pain. I’ve seen three different therapists who did a treatment called Field Control Therapy which involves the use of kinesiology and remedies which are homeopathic/tautopathic. I was given Accutane homeopathically at different potencies, one was 90y and one was 50M. Both I think are fairly high potencies. I haven’t taken them other than those few times, and on my own I took Accutane 200C 2 or 3 times. I don’t feel any better. I just wonder if maybe I need to keep taking it. Because what they were doing with me was a kind of detox and I reacted badly to them all I haven’t persisted with their treatment. I just wonder for chronic long term problems what the right treatment is. Do you have any experience with treatment Accutane toxicity?
Hi Emma. I’m sorry to hear about your suffering from Accutane. I talk about this drug in Impossible Cure and how it can cause suicidal ideation among the teenagers who take it for acne. Where I live in Palo Alto, teen suicide has become a huge problem. While everyone discusses how to deal with it, no one mentions that the true cause might be drugs like antidepressants and Accutane. In this community, parents have become accustomed to the idea that most teenagers need to be on some psychiatric drug! It’s very sad.
Anyway, taking the offending drug in potency is one way to detox. However, as you experienced, this can be a difficult experience and is by no means guaranteed. My advice is to see a classical homeopath who has experience with isopathic treatment as well. Such homeopaths know better (than someone who does something like Field Control Therapy) how to use remedies to support the detox process. They will also use general constitutional remedies to heal the body — which might be more important, really, than detox. In my view, excellent classical treatment, based strictly on the overall mental/physical/emotional symptoms being experienced (which might involve isopathic/tautopathic remedies, or not), can more gently detox and heal.
By the way, I’m not sure what a 90y potency is. I’ve never heard of it. But yes, 50M is very high, and even 200c can be a very high potency.
I hope this is helpful!
