Knee and hip pain Accutane?

Accutane and joint pains
Thank you for your question. A side effect of Accutane is joint or muscle pains, especially after strenuous exercise. In my experience, decreasing the dose of Accutane tends to help minimize or eliminate the joint pain, or some of my patients refrained from certain exercises or sports which also resolved the pain. With that being said, if you continue to experience knee and hip pain, I highly recommend you consult with your prescribing dermatologist. Take care and good luck.
