    joint/muscle pain from accutane

    Hi everyone,
    I am on my second round of accutane and so far everything is going great except for I am experiencing quite a bit of pain. The pain occurs in my lower back, and in my joints. I am also getting a lot of pain around my chest and rib feels as though the inside of my body is bruised. I had these symptoms last time and they went away as soon as I stopped the medication. They may be a tad more severe this time, so I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I do know one thing..I'm definitely not going to stop taking this!

    I had the same experience with Accutane. All I could do is take Aleve and give my body more rest throughout the day.

    i went off accutane almost a year ago and those symptoms went away mostly about 2 months after i stopped taking it. When i used to relax my back when i laid in bed, it would hurt severly for a couple of seconds then stop, and sometimes, this long after ive stopped taking it, i'll lay down to sleep and relax my back and i'll feel that stitch of pain in my lower back, only like once every month or two though. But yea it goes away mostly

    When I was on accutane, my legs were stiff, slow and became tired/sore very easily - I had to stop sports after about a month or 2.
