Accutane : does it affect appetite or exercise ability

Im wondering if accutane affects appetite at all in those who used it? I havnt seem to come across this is a side effect so i thought id ask. And how likely would it be for me to continue weight training at moderate to high intensity while on accutane (concerned about joint pains/how common they are)?

Thanx,

Mike

My appetite hasn't changed at all.

At first I was able to work out without any change. Now I can't do much, my muscles start to ache after a tiny bit of excercise and my joints seem to click more when I'm excersising. Some people are fine and can carry on doing weights through the course. Lucky bastards. :cry:

Alright, havent been on here for a while, im about 6 months post accutane and my skin has never been clearer. In answer to you. Once your body gets more used to the accutane you may be able to excerise a bit more normally but as has already been mentioned you will get worse muscle aches. Best not to do too much excercise during accutane, especially if your on a high dose 60mg or more a day

cheers
