sore back anyone?

Hey guys and gals; my son's on Accutane fro 2 weeks now and has developed a sore back...have any of you had this and does it go away or stay for the entire treatment? I just wanted to let you all know that you are an inspiration and that having other people talk about their acne problems has really helped deal with his ( and my) concerns.

Yea I got a sore back but it goes away within a couple of days. Isn't really a big deal unless its severe back pain.

A note to what kingziggy said,

Fish oil tablets don't really improve the sore back it really is for better absorbtion of the actual accutane drug. Since oil= fat and since accutane is fat soluble (which means it dissolves in oil) it absorbs almost twice as much. And don't take a joint vitamin or any supplement with any vitamin A it may cause a overdose.

I hope your son the best of luck :)
