Isotretinoin & Tattoos

24 November 2013 - 12:54 PM

Hi all,


Has anyone ever got a tattoo whilst taking isotretinoin?  If so, what dosage were you on etc. 


Did the medication affect your tattoo design?  Did you encounter any problems??


All/any stories would be much appreciated.


Many thanks



Isotretinoin And Eyes

25 September 2013 - 02:37 PM

Hey everyone,


What treatments do you find work best for the side effect of dry, dull, and yellow eyes whilst on isotretinoin?  Curious to hear what everyone uses, how successful etc.  I find my drops work great, but only for a limited time - by the time I get home from work each day, I look like I need a liver transplant until I put my drops in again!


Any thoughts?



Isotretinoin And Jogging

13 August 2013 - 03:41 PM

Hey all,


Is anyone else out there experiencing big aches and pains, more than is normal, when doing strenous exercise, particularly jogging, when on isotretinoin??


I'm really struggling to make gains and its been some months training now because of the pain I'm getting from jogging.  I have all the appropriate footwear etc, fitted by experts, but still ache more than is normal, so much so that it can really hurt to even walk the next day.  I find I jog a long distance one day but then need around 3 days away from it before being able to tolerate it again.


I should probably preface this with the fact that I'm training to do a 10k which is in a few weeks time but as I said I'm really struggling to improve as Im finding I need too much time away before running again.


Anyone else know what I mean or has experienced the same thing??  And to the smart alec's out there I know it's not because im training too hard, or need to train more etc etc -  I'm convinced it's because of the meds - just curious to get everyones feedback and experiences.


Thanks in advance
