please reply amnesteem
a few weeks ago, i posted that my insurance didn't cover accutane. Now they saw they will cover amnesteem, and i wanted a few general questions answere by those who have taken it or have useful knowledge. I heard that the only thing different is accutane has different inactive ingridents, is it true? What is the success rate of amnesteem compared to accutane? I've heard that both cause bone aches, should i not work out?and another thing, that both stunt growth? That really worries me because i am in the middle of puberty and also in highschool, how will this effect me?

amnesteem is the same thing as accutane, just the generic brand. i use it. same side effects, same success rate. yes it can cause muscle/bone aches for SOME people. if working out aggravates this, then you might want to cut down, but i haven't had to.
