So, I stopped taking my birth control this year (Minerva 35) because I figured out it was really fuelling my migraines. And this helped a lot. From having migraines every day they decreased to only once every 4 weeks. The downside was my skin got pretty bad. I went onto Yaz and at my own insistence started taking a 20 mg dosage of Accutane. For the first couple of months I had no side effects, other than the obvious ones (dry skin, chapped lips etc). Recently though, my migraines have increased to once, sometimes twice a week. I immediately went off the Accutane (this was about 8 days ago). My gp thinks Accutane is the most likely culprit but I just want to be certain.
Is it most likely the Accutane causing this? Or could my Yaz be doing it? I’m pretty worried having only recently gotten on top of my migraines and rebound headaches. Any help?
