Hey guys, I've been taking 80 mg of Amnesteem a day for the past 2 and a half months and I've been getting increasingly bad joint pain. It started in my back after a long roadtrip and never went away.. now it's progressing to my knees and hips as well. I know it's listed as a side effect, but how serious is it? Does anyone know what it could be an indicator of? And is there any suppliments I could take to help remedy or alleviate this? i know some people take vitamins to help with their side effects...

I'm just starting to get a little bit too uncomfortable lately so I thought I'd ask you guys if you've ever experienced the same.

Thanks so much guys.

I found it helps to take an oil blend (although I read somewhere I think that you should avoid blends containing cod liver oil because of the vitamin A content - not sure if thats right but thought I'd mention it anyway).

How much water do you drink each day? I've been on Accutane for three months now, and had back pains at first. I noticed that by drinking lots of water, the pain simply went away. I've been running a lot lately, playing soccer or just doing laps around the football field each day, and I haven't had any joint pains, even though I had torn my knee last year.
