5mg is really really low I'm on 60 and weigh 160lbs. Usually if you are only doing a 5-6month course which is recomended by accutate and most derm's you should probably be at at least 20mg-40mg. I am not your dr though. If I were you I would see another derm and get a 2nd opinion. Most people do not have hair loss but it is a possible side effect, you can take a vitimine called biotin while on tane. You can also use a shampoo called nioxin as well as the nioxin conditioner.

You may need to use a conditioning masque once a month to add moisture. If you are on 5mg I am guessing by reading others post that you will probably not get bad side effects. Oh...yeah about the vit A my pharmasist and dr. said that I could take any vitimines as long as it did not contain vit A...maybe you should call the pharmacy and ask them they would know. Then you can take vitamines individually and avoid the A..

My hair is dried out by tane and I started using a Neutrogena healing shine serum when my hair is damp. It helps tremendously! My hair is sleek,soft and not stringy any more. Check out the link...

My hair went crazy during and after the course.From almost 100% straight hair to very curly in a matter of months, weird huh? Can't complain though, curly hair suits me way better anyways.I can't be absolutely sure that this was caused by the drug though, as everyone else in my family (except my mother) has curly hair...

My hair actually got curly as well after Murad Acne Complex...

I agree with Cosmo- I would get a 2nd opinion. 5mg is so low that I doubt you would even get any benefit from it unless you weigh like... 80lbs. and even then it sounds low. I would also get a 2nd opinion about the Vitamin A, because everything I've read/heard has said No Vitamin A while taking Murad Acne Complex, and the label on my meds says No Vitamin A as well. Maybe since you're only on 5mg of Murad Acne Complex it doesn't matter, but I'd still be careful. I've heard of a multivitamin called "everything but A" that doesn't have Vitamin A in it, which you could take if you needed vitamins for some other reason.if you only have a few pimples you even be on Murad Acne Complex?on 5mg I doubt you'll have any problems with your hair...
