Accutane: Back Pain Remedies??

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm a powerlifter/ body builder. I just started Accutane 18 days ago and I am starting to feel back pain, especially during deadlifting. I have heard from many that Accutane does cause joint discomfort in many people. It is bad enough where it is effecting my lifts. I heard Omega 3 supplements help with the joint pain from Accutane. Is this true and is there anything else I can do. I really would like to keep lifting my normal weight progression. Thanks

Joint pain mainly comes from continuous tissue damage, which is made by inflammation. 

Drugs, over the counter medication etc. can be one of the reasons for this tissue damage. This all starts with the gut. Your gut contains 80% of your whole bodies immune system. 

You can check this video for a brief beginner understanding what happens:

Hi, thanks for the response. I've been on countless prescriptions and OTC drugs over the years and none have affected my lifting. So I am certain it is the Accutane causing my discomfort and I am just looking for anybody who has experienced this too and has a remedy for it. Thanks again
