Accutane safe for me?

Recommended Posts

Hello, i was think of taking accutane due to i have tried many things but i still have pretty bad acne, what i was reading in the brochure is that it could cause stunted muscle growth. Now, i am 15 and 1/2 and a avid weightlifter and plan to do it for the rest of my life, so i was wondering if there is anyone who is a weightlifter that has taken accutane and not experienced anything bad?

Yeh, i have found my gain progress has lowered a little, but i think thats more to the prednisone i am taking with Accutane.

As far as i'm aware Accutane doesnt prevent gains, some others on here that lift weights also agree. Just stick to lots of protein and get on fish oil tablets, oh and get off protein shakes they tend to make acne real bad (personal experience).
