Accutane (Claravis) month 4: dry lips & joint pain

A much needed update: Claravis Month 4   I have not updated, been super busy and actually not a lot has changed.    So heres how things are going:    I am now half way finished with month 4.

The beginning-week 2

So i figured I might as well keep track of my Accutane experience.   A little backstory: I have had acne since I was 12 or 13 years old. I am now 26 years old. I usually would say my acne is moderate, but always persistent. I would have cycles where I break out then as it clears up i would have a semi clear face. Then break out again.
