Aching joints on accutane

Recommended Posts

Been on tane for 7 weeks and I feel like an old woman (I'm only 24!) My joints hurt, especially my hips hurt when I walk. Also when I've been sitting for a while and stand up to walk, my ankles and knees give in and I hobble round for a few minutes like an old lady!

Please tell me this will clear up after tane and not be permanent. I'm very worried, especially as I suffered from arthritis as a child and don't want it returning.

I've been achy too, but i think your body gets used to the medication as my aches have subsided after about two weeks. I usually only feel sore when i bump up my medication.

Hips, bum and legs are a killer....

Take 6 fish oil capsules a day, 2 with each meal.

I do this, and now my joints don't even hurt after a hard workout
