Thank you for writing to us.
The yellow color of the nails/roots of the nails that you are experiencing certainly is a side effect of accutane
. This is not something serious or anything to worry about.
Yellow nails actually does not usually indicate a liver problem at all.
It is the yellowish discoloration of the eyes that indicate a liver problem.
In liver failure
the nails actually turn white which is called as leukonychia
You can have your liver enzymes checked by having a liver function test or a metabolic profile done which will make sure that your liver is fine and your drug is not affecting the liver.
I have the feeling that everything will turn out fine.
