HGH and bone growth
When I was entering high school i went on accutane for a bit. DOctors said one of the side effects is the clsoing of the growth plates. My father and brothers all have faily big bones. I am about 6'2 210 with good athletic build, but my wrists are small. I also tend to break a bone every now and then during sports. Can HGH possibly "unlock" the growth plates to maybe allow my bones/joints to grow to their original potential or was I stuck with small wrists from the get go?

Well according to your profile you're about 23. There is no way ever in hell that you can unlock your growth plates. Once growth plates are closed (usually around 18 for males) that's it!! That's why GH is prescribed for younger people when it comes to using it as a growth aid.
Who cares about small wrists, you're 6'2, that's 4 inches taller then average. Be happy with your height brotha. Look on the bright side. Smaller wrists will make your forearms look bigger.

small bones are better when u have more muscle... in regards to the way it looks. As said before your 6'2 so your already ahead of the game

Found this, seems your small wrists probably have nothing to do with Accutane. More likely, genetics.
Q: I have just started taking Accutane for my acne problem. I've heard that Accutane prematurely closes the growth plates. Is that true?
You tell us you are a boy, and we can understand your concern about whether or not a drug could limit your future height. It is highly unlikely that Accutane will affect your growth plates when given in recommended dosages over the standard course of 15 to 20 weeks. Prospective x-ray studies of acne patients treated with Accutane have not shown any inhibition of growth, nor have there been any concerns noted in clinical practice. If you have read the detailed pharmacological literature from the manufacturer, you might have noticed that there was a case report “suggestive” of premature closure of the epiphyses (growth plates) in two children treated with high doses of Accutane for a different medical condition called hyperkeratinization. But this has not been a problem in boys treated for cystic acne. Accutane is a powerful drug with many other side effects. It can cause birth defects if a girl gets pregnant while taking it. Rarely it may damage the liver or other organs, and recently there has been concern in the media (although unproven) that it might trigger suicidal thoughts. So be sure to follow your dermatologist’s recommendations for blood tests and regular follow-up visits.
