  1. I've read about back soreness as being a common side effect for Accutane but I'm a little worried right now.

Only recently my back has started to hurt a lot in certain positions (until the muscle relaxes after a few seconds). I'm 1 month 11 days into tre

  6. I've been on monodox for about 2 months now. I saw minor improvement in the beginning. After about a month, my skin sigificantly improved. I rarely break out now, and when I do it is hardly noticeable and short lasting. So I guess I can say my experience on monodox was good . I also use topicals both morning and night (Duac and Retin-A)
