    Default Roaccutane & Joints

    Hey I've just started taking roaccutane (accutane) about three weeks ago for my acne. I have read that roaccutane can cause joint problems and would like to avoid this happening.
    Does anyone have any recommendations or experience with roaccutane or joint problems?

    I'm thinking of taking Super Cissus from USP Labs, or would a general joint formula (glucosamine, msm & chondroitin) be the way to go?

    Cheers!!!

    Cam.

    Fish oil my friend. Accutane dries up your skin and joints, and fish oil helps a fair bit, especially in large doses, 15-20g daily. Easiest way to do this is get liquid oil and 2x tbsp daily. Get a good moisturizer as well.

    I just had another look at orange triad to order it and see that it has Vitamin A in it. Unfortunately while on roaccutane I have to stay away from Vit A
    I'm taking fish oil and olive oil atm but can still feel my joints drying out.. super cissus is still on its way from America (found it for $30 cheaper than here in Oz including postage).

    Hopefully this works. If not I'll have to stop taking the roaccutane, I'd rather have ance and good joints than no acne and feeling like I have arthritis...

    I've stopped taking the accutane now. It's terrible stuff, the joint and muscular pains were starting to get really bad, even though my osteo said movement and alignment wise I'm in great shape.
    It's not worth risking my sport and health over some acne ;-)

    Woo can't wait to see some huge improvements in my training now!!!

    have a look into tococaps its very good for hair and nails and the skin too, many people on here have been using it for hair loss and its working great for them as the skin is also related it will work well for skin too, not sure if it will help or not with acne but hey its good for you anyway and can help increase testosterone.

    Thanks ON. I'll do some research in to it and see if anyone has reported improvements with acne.
    I don't need to worry too much about testosterone levels as I'm not trying to bulk up, pretty much all body-weight and plyometrics work

    i took this in my mid teens, you get dehydrated quick as hell lips will crack and bleed not worth it :P
    a good multi v, ON recommended a great one, orange triad, seen reviews its top 5 on the market today.

    fyi i remember my doc saying that if i get any signs of depressions / anxiety / suicidal thoughts to stop the medication as theyve been sued in the US for no black box warning.

    i also believe roaccutane does effect joint and bones; good info: http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/skin-and-...oaccutane.html

    edit: i see you stopped taking it, wise choice haha, i only did a month and couldnt take the side effects, but seemed to help significantly

    Thanks for the info.

    Yeah the side effects are terrible. I could handle the dry skin and putting paw paw cream on my lips every ten seconds but it was the joint pain that got me. It was getting worse each day, first with my knees getting sore then shoulders and was just starting on my lower back when I stopped.

    The worst part was how it mentally affected me at training though. I was afraid to train properly because of the joint pain and didn't want to injure myself, then there was the paranoia of getting arthritis.

    Great results but not worth it!

    Yeah I'm trying to save up some money to get some orange triad or something similar but money's a bit tight, saving up for overseas and training/uni etc
