I was on 30mg, and I'm close to finishing 60mg and I've had zero muscle aching. I am quite a gym junkie and was told to tone it down a bit but after a couple of weeks on the 30mg tablets I went back to my usual routine as I was feeling great.
However, when i first started going to the gym, many years ago (before roaccutane started) what I used to do was have a bath, it relaxes your muscles and gets them feeling nice and loose. Hot yoga may do the trick as well, but try not to strain your muscles.
The moisturiser I use is Dermol 500 Lothian, and it is fantastic. My skin was beginning to get quite itchy and almost unbearable so i started to use Germoline, it really helped!
Hope this helps!

I'm currently taking Roaccutane and have just been bumped up to 60mg a day. I'm finding the back pain/stiff joints quite bad atm. Are you still taking medication and experiencing pain or how quickly did it clear up?
Also I'm finding the dry skin quite painful. My lips get so dry they bleed and my eyelids are extremely dry they sometimes split in the crease. I have tried all kinds of moisturisers, vaseline, Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream, E45 etc but nothing is helping. Any recommendations?
I'm also experiencingn quite bad flushings in my cheeks and extremely bad sweating issues which I read can be a side effect.
I took Roaccutane about 4 years ago for facial acne and couldn't praise it high enough as the results were outstanding. Now I'm taking it for body acne and seeing no improvement. I'm hoping I'll be taken off it soon because the side effects seems worse than the benefits.1 Report this reply to rachel052
