Not sure where I should post this, so I guess since its something you consume, I’d put it here.
I was on Accutane a while back for my acne which worked great. I didn’t notice too many side effects, mainly just dry lips and dry skin.
I’ve been off of it for a couple months now and recently hurt my elbow. (I was punching a punching bag, I missed on a particular hit and hit a wooden chair pretty hard). I went to the doctors and got x rays and everything seems fine. She classified it as a sprain and prescribed some NSAIDS.
It’s been about 5 1/2 weeks and although its better, it still hurts.
I’m wondering if accutane has permanently screwed up my joints and ability to heal. I’ve read many mixed things about these side effects being permanent on a couple of different forums but thought I get my best answers here.
Thanks for your help.
