Bit of a long shot but wondering if anyone has trained while they're prescribed isotretinoin?

I've been on it for around 6 weeks, maybe longer. Am noticing that my legs and back ache a lot more than usual. I was on 20mg per day and that's been reduced to 10 so I'm hoping it eases off.

I used to be on roaccutane, but haven't taken it for a long time now. I wasn't a runner back then, but did aerobics/fitness classes. Don't recall it having any effect on my ability to exercise.

Billy is on it. It doesn't seem to affect his ability to do exercise. It does affect his ability to drink beer, though, so be careful.

I took this many years ago and I definitely noticed that my muscles ached more when I did strenuous exercise. I did find that it got better over time. When I went on it a second time it didn't affect me the same way so I guess I must have adapted to it. Hope this helps :-)

Sorry, I missed the responses on here :-)

I don't drink much due to IBS so shouldn't be an issue :-P

LN, I hope I'll get used to it. Will keep getting out there and see how it goes.

Got something to say?
