2 Weeks Into Accutane.....

Recommended Posts

First off I'm 20 years old, active, lift weights 4 times a week.

I've been on accutane for 18 days. For months and months I debated if I should even use it. I got the prescription but never got it filled cause I decided against it. A few weeks later my skin got so bad I just said screw it I'll start taking it.

I have tinnitus which is ringing in your ears from being a musician for years. Only 10 days into taking accutane the ringing seemed to get louder. Turns out this is a side effect.

2 days ago 16 days into treatment, I was lifting at the gym and noticed weird pain in my back. I used to have postural back pain but has been relieved for years. The pain is literally in my spine, and also in elbows a little bit.

I know joint pain is a side effect, but only 2 weeks in is ridiculous.

I think this drug is BS and extremely dangerous. For that reason I'm done taking it.

But, I'm already stressing cause I know my face will never get better without it.

I can't believe there is nothing else to cure bad acne than a life threatening drug.
