Back Pains... Anyone Else?

Hey everyone! So it's basically day 8 for me of my claravis journey and I'm having really bad back pains. I don't know if it's from sleeping in a bad position or if it's from the drug, because back pains are a side effect of the drug. If it is from the drug, are those side effects supposed to come that early? I have no idea to be honest. It hurts a lot and I'm not used to having such an intense pain in my back.

Day 7 Of Claravis.

So it's Day 7 of my journey on Claravis (Accutane) and my acne is getting substantially red. It's starting to get dry but it's also smoothing down. My lips are really dry despite using Nivea hydrating lip care chapstick. I wash my face with Cetaphil Foaming Face Wash and moisturize with the Cetaphil Lotion. (You could find all Cetaphil products at CVS or a local pharmacy.) For make up, I use neutrogena & almay products because they're non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores. It
