  • lostboy1993 on Jun, 9, 2014:

    Male, 21, was on accutane for 4 months. symptoms occurred around 2 months in when i woke up one day. Counldn't turn my neck or tilt my head back and when i tried, a huge cracking noise would result. It's loud. after i stopped for a month and a half it's still going on; it isn't getting better. My whole shoulder blade is hunched up from swelling and inflammation. i don't recommend accutane for athletes or people who do a lot of sports/workouts. From what i figured out, the accutane generally robs your body of water. Muscles need water to function. Thats why athletes get muscle spasms more often when its hot, because they are sweating all the moisture out. In a nutshell, the accutane is not only stealing the moisture from your skin, but muscles as well. My rhomboid muscle is so swollen, it completely destabilized my spine. It might have even caused some arthritis. I'm getting injected tomorrow. wish me luck.
