    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.
