Only Two Weeks Left! Severe joint pain!

I am so excited that I am almost finished with Accutane! I cannot believe that soon I will be done! Yippee!

Skin update- perfectly clear skin. No pimples whatsoever. An occasional blackhead. Face looks great! My husband still has the one stubborn pimple on his cheek that he keeps raw by shaving over it, but otherwise, perfect skin.

Side effects- my husband and I worked in the yard on Saturday. We both are so sore that we can barely walk. Our joints are stiff and sore and the muscle pain has been intense. We both feel like we are ninety years old. It has been so bad that, for the first time while on this drug, I actually thought about stopping the treatment. It was a fleeting thought, but I did have it! I guess the joint pain has gotten so bad because we have so much of the drug in our system and it is catching up with us. Otherwise, besides the chapped lips and dry eyes, not much to report.
