accutane and athletics?

Recommended Posts

im 17 and play varsity soccer and basketball. today was my first day on accutane. i was wondering if anyone knows how much harm it does to athletic ability? sports are more important to me than clearing up my skin, and i wouldn't want to take too big of a risk with accutane. thank you!

I'm 17 and play in 3 hockey different hockey leagues around the year, and I can say accutane HAS in fact lowered my game. Not so much during the actual game but the next day or so my body is in more pain, and I definitely notice back pain witch sucks really bad considering my young age. regardless I'm considering this my intensive training and hopefully when I get off the pill I will return to normal.

To make it short I have noticed a deterioration in my athletics, then again everyones different.

Hope this helps.
