From this study (2 months ago):
Was on Metformin (1000 mg per day), which was recently increased with a goal of 2000 mg per day (gradual increase). In the AM, I usually start with a cup of coffee, then breakfast, followed by more coffee (two cups per day). I take metformin immediately following meals. I fix up my coffee with organic half & half, and pure stevia. When drinking coffee, or dairy products, I experience severe upset stomach, without bowl and abdominal sounds. Is it possible I developed a form of lactose intolerance? This is the "only" dairy I use and prefer to use unsweetened almond milk in place of dairy, except for coffee. This morning, as an experiment, I decided not to fix any coffee and the symptoms have subsided so far today.

My daughter also developed schizophrenia while on accutane. I am led to believe that it will be a permanent condition. She will suffer with this for the rest of her life. Do not allow your children to take accutane.

My son developed schizophrenia after taking accutane. He now wonders around Ontario, homeless, angry, and unable to make appropriate decisions for himself and there's nothing we can do.
