I'm on 60mg a day for 3 months now and I get severe muscle pain right afterwards, and the next day.

I can deal with it though. I love the game.

I'm not really a high performance athelete but I have been lifting weights regularly on accutane. The soreness I get is about the same as everyone else and is easily shouldered. In all honesty, my experience won't really matter though since accutane seems to affect everyone a little differently. I've had no side effects aside from dryness so in that regard, I am very fortunate. I'm still not clear though (my treatment has about a month or two left in it).
