accutane & arthritis

Recommended Posts

2 years ago at the age of 21 i took a course of accutane. I weighed about 130 lbs. My dosage was 40,40,80,80,120 ( cumulitive 180 mg/kg). Although i was completely cleared by the third month my doc pushed me to take that 120 mg/kg/day for the last month; he said " dont worry your blood work is A+". Those were his exact words.

i did not develop any sideffects while on accutane. About 5-6 months post accutane my joints became painful and noisy. Now 2 years post accutane i have very bad arthritic joints.

I was physically fit before accutane with no personal/family history of joint problems. When FDA lists arthritis, fibromylagia, arthligia as sideffects of accutane they not kidding guys :|
