Back Pain, What To Do ?

So I have noticed a back pain while I'm currently on Accutane, and I'm kind of worried because it hurts pretty bad.

My legs hurt also, but mostly the back, is this normal or should I notify my doctor abotu the back pain ?

as soon as i started taking accutane, i started to notice my back hurt extremely bad whenever i would bend down or lay down in bed at night. when i went to the doctor, i didnt even think to tell him about it, he asked! he said that it is very common with accutane to get joint and muscle aches. He told me to take motrin or ibeprofen to make it stop hurting. and sure enough, a few weeks later, the joint in my jaw started to hurt really bad and for some reason, my side constantly hurts, like i pulled a muscle or something.

but yeah, muscle and joint pains are fairly common. Just let your doctor know if you take pain reliever for it and it still doesnt go away.
