Accutane and muscle fatigue

Hello all,

I am 6 weeks into my first treatment of Accutane. So far the only side affects I have been bothered by are nose bleeds and muscle soreness when exercising.

I was doing some searching on the web and found that muscle damage can be serious with Accutane and to aviod any rigorous activities. I am doing a triathlon in June when I will be 3 months into the treatment.

So far the results of Accutane has been wonderful -- my skin has responded faster then expected.

I don't want to quit the treatment. I also don't want to collapse or be injured during the triathlon. Plus in preparing for it, it is more difficult to run as I get sore faster.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there anything I should consider such as a change in diet or more down time between exercising?

Thanks :)
