Dieting on Accutane

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping to be fit for a sailing regatta at the beginning of summer and the team captain said I needed to lose a lot of weight to make the team. I've been dieting and exercising an hour a day for about 3 weeks so far and have lost 7 pounds. I have another 12 to go, really, to get to my ideal weight and fitness.

I haven't had any side effects from my increased exercise or dieting but I hope some of you can give me some advice. Should I be worried about losing so much weight so quickly? Has anyone else experienced side effects from dieting on accutane?

Should be fine as long as the following is true:

(1) Your blood tests are normal.

(2) You are drinking plenty of water (3L/day).

(3) Joint/muscle pain is tolerable.

hey im sorta in the same position, i am in the cutting phase of my work out plans and have been losing a lot of body fat recently.

The only thing im experiencing is joint / muscle pains, but im guessing because my accutane course has been going on for longer, i have been getting plenty of rest.
