Re: Accutane and joint pain
I finished up a 5 month course of accutane (80 mg/day) last month and I did experience joint pain for at least the last three months of taking the accutane. But, I had torn ligaments in my knee a month BEFORE starting accutane and limped around for a few months before finally starting physical therapy. Then I developed plantar fascitis which required more physical therapy (you might want to ****** it- after sitting for awhile extremely painful getting up - tons of heel pain). So...it was hard to distinguish what if any of it was caused by Accutane -
On the other hand I did have some finger.wrist pain (for example truying to open a twist bottle) and all over achiness not caused by anything obvious after being on Accutane for a few months and that has gone away thankfully. Sorry this is confusing but hope it helps a bit. Maureen.
