The first time I was on accutane, I was about his age. got backaches. They're the worst after bending over, or lying flat on your back (like as you're going to sleep). Because they're not constant, I never took anything for them. I guess something like Aleve would help.
They go away after you stop. I'm on my second round, and the backaches are back with a vengeance. I'm on twice the dosage he is, though.
And since he's 15 (I'm 18) I have to add this. I went to the beach last week, and got badly sunburned thanks to the accutane. I was only out for a couple of hours, and reapplied SPF45 sunscreen twice, but it blistered my shoulders bad enough that we went to the semi-emergency room. please use sunscreen!!!!
