I just visited the dermatologist today to try and sort the acne out on my face. He recommended a prescription of a drug called 'Roaccutane' which I would have to take for 4-7 months.
He listed alot of side effects and things I shouldn't do while taking it. One of the "don'ts" that concerned me was that I am not allowed to do any strenuous physical activity. He says that the drug would make my joints all dry and less lubricated so they wouldn't perform as well.
This concerns me as I play tiring levels of indoor soccer 3 times as week, as well as lift 4-5 times a week. I don't want to be sitting on my ass for 4-7 months while I wait for this drug to clear my acne up.
Does anyone know a way around this problem? Would it matter if I just kept training full on anyway, should I keep training but do lighter weights? Or should I sit out the 4-7 months doing nothing. I really want to keep training, as I'm really making progress building muscle and even started cutting alcohol from my habits.
