    Please do not belittle this woman's pain or discomfort. It's been 2 years since your comment, and perhaps she is better. Let's hope so. My daughter's dermatologist prescribed accutane, like so many had before. I kept holding off because her acne started at 12 and I had heard about the side effects. Nothing worked for several years. We finally bit the bullet, her acne was on her back and chest and she couldn't wear a bathing suite or strapless dresses, even v neck t shirts were out. After little under a week on this horrible drug, she started feeling knee pain and swelling. Fluid pockets formed around her left knee. We went to the doctor and got a big defensive reaction from her. "No one here has ever had that happen" she says. "'My whole office has never had a patient that has had that reaction" . She then proceeds to stick a syringe into my daughters knee, with no anesthesia, she gets close to passing out on the table, and draws out fluid from the two biggest fluid pockets. She suggests it may be an infection. Of course it goes to the lab, and comes back negative. Clear, no bacteria. We go to orthopedist. X-rays, MRI, guess what? No damage, no degradation, bones perfect, no tissue damage. We knew this because my daughter had no accident or trauma. It was just the Accutane. No one believed us. Then the orthopedist reads the MRI, he says there is inflammation putting pressure on the joint. And excess fluid. It will come down gradually he hoped. "Maybe it's gout?" He wants to test next for crystals in the fluid. My daughter never had gout. She's 17. She weighs 90 pounds. She is otherwise healthy. Nowhere have I read that a gout flare up can last 2 months! I know it can affect anyone, but she is not in the largest predictor group for it, or anywhere near. No one in the family has or had it. I have read too many of these stories, and don't like it when people put down others and tell them to be happy they don't have cancer. That's just not responsible. My daughter has missed school. She can't walk. She is missing her sport season that was going to be a possible scholarship to college. She can't enjoy daily activities. If she has Gout now, it came from the accutane, or it is again, an incorrect diagnosis. No one wants to put the blame on accutane. These doctors make a fortune on these pharmaceuticals. If more people wrote, and got together on this issue, I feel it would be a great thing for others. Maybe we could stop this drug being prescribed and yes, doing great harm to their lives.

    Dear Steven, ABSOLUTELY! I never had GOUT until some fool Dr. gave me Prilosec for his INCORRECT diagnosis of gerd!

    I did NOT have GERD, I have Diverticulitis and then 5 months later I have a ANGINA attack for the first time! I was diagnosed by Paramedics as having ANGINA, yet my fool Dr. didn't bother to test me for ANGIA, instead he writes me out a prescription for Prilosec saying it may just be GERD. I don't even get heartburn or rarely burp or have any stomach problems yet he dismissed my dangerous Unstable ANGINA! SO, 2 weeks after taking his Prilosec my thick hair is STILL falling out (almost 1/3 of the way all fine!) AND suddenly all my finger joints have these painful off white bumps big and small, some look like I have yellowish Bird seeds just under my skin. I hurts like CRAZY and as a Belly Dancer for a living I am LIVID at the destruction of my HANDS and HAIR because I need to maintain a "model look" for the Dance!
    I have been RUINED! Now it flares insanely red ,swollen & painful & STIFF that I can't do my costume design & jewelry design EITHER! as I cannot bend my fingers! Also I can't enjoy the foods I loved to eat which was sea foods and occasional red meat! Not even the Broccoli I love to eat either!
    As far as my live is concerned, Its all OVER now. It has left me crippled and EXTREMELY DEPRESSED!

    Lets start a CLASS ACTION Lawsuit against it's maker of this drug!
    And to think, I never even had GERD! But Not after this drug my stomach care barely handle even taking pain medications and my lower intestines are easily Inflamed/aggitated.
    What to Do? Contact me anyone at Seekchrist2live@gmail.com
    God Speed :(

    My Gout began for the first time in my life at age 52 (white male) about 3-4 weeks after beginning a daily regimen of Prilosec. I consume very little of foods traditionally related to gout and Prilosec was the only change in drug intake within several months of the first incident.

    Prior to taking Prilosec nightly incidence of acid reflux (eg, waking feeling the reflux) had only happened a couple of times in the previous year. After a month on Prilosec I was having this symptom almost every night, though the acidity level (burning) was much less.

    Don't know if Prilosec is a culprit or not and still taking a daily dose, afraid to stop taking it because of research showing the relapse impact of stopping the medication. I am suspicious that dramatically cutting down on acid production in one part of the body, might trigger my body to produce more acid in other parts.
