Back Pain? Anyone?


Hello everyone! Well this is my first post, so i hope I do it right. I've been on Accutane for about two weeks now. I'm a little bit (ok really) nervous about it though. So far, I've experienced pretty much no changes in my skin (except dryness of course), but I am having a problem with chest tightness, upper back pain, and rib pain. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? Any info would be helpful.

    Throughout my accutane course I have experienced back pain, joint pain, and chest pain. And of course dry skin, lips, and eyes.

    yeah i had back pains and they were really bad but now are gone. get fish oil pills the ones that say enteric coated or you will have fishy taste every time you burp. fish oil pills got rid of mine so i would definitely recommend them. also try not to sit in front of the computer all day try to move around some.
