Accutane and advil

Recommended Posts

Ok, I'm on day 15 or so on Accutane and things are going well so far. Tonight I'm having terrible pain in my leg though ( it's not due to Accutane as I've had it before and it's usually after I've been standing a lot during the day or exercising ). Anyway, what can I take for the pain? Is Advil ok? Tylenol is not good right? Help, I need to take something so I can go to sleep tonight!

So long as you do not exceed the max daily dose on the bottle you'll be fine.

Tylenol i would avoid because the toxic dose is just barely more than the max dose. With ibuprofin you have a lot more wiggle room. Asprin has never worked for me.

Thank you all!

I did a google last night and could not really find anything that said not to take it so I did. The pain was pretty bad but it went away with advil and has stayed away :). I'm gonna stay away from it as much as possible though.
