This is my second time on Accutane. I am taking 20mg a day, but I have stopped because of my knees. I was only taking my second course for like 4 weeks.

The last few days my knees have been like an old creaking door when I move them back and forth. I can also feel slight rubbing at the top of the knee cap as well as the sides. It also feels spongy at times and when I squeeze the knee cap I can almost hear and feel a cringe. I also feel a slight warmth in the knees. I’ve done no exercise apart from some running 3 weeks ago but it wasn’t that that did it.

Any advice or clues to as what it is.

Thanks for any help.

My left knee also feels spongy. However this has absolutely nothing to do with Roaccutane. I over-trained playing football and damaged it last year. If I do light jogging, the spongy feeling is ever more prevalent. Perhaps you may have done something similar?

Also, why only 20mg a day? I am on double that, and I even consider that to be low. For the drug to work effectively, daily amount is more important than a lengthy course duration.

Anyway, I suggest you go see your GP. Something like this should not be left to an internet forum or google.
