    Can anyone recommend any supplements for Post Accutane recovery? (24F)

    Hi there, I took two rounds of Accutane (Roaccutane/Isotretinoin) in 2012, and again in 2015, which were pretty disastrous for different reasons. I have the following side effects which I can't seem to shake:

    Painful joints, particularly hands, wrists, elbows, back

    Skin wrinkling a lot faster, poor skin repair, extremely dry skin no matter how much I hydrate myself/ moisturise, lips that crack easily

    Very thin skin under my eyes, making me look very grey and washed out/tired

    Dry hair that breaks easily

    Slightly blurred vision and dry eyes

    Dry throat constantly (am not diabetic)

    IBS symptoms that have had all sensitivities/allergens ruled out and have been investigated by Drs.

    There is no other cause to these symptoms, all started on Accutane, none have gone away. I feel like my body was 'dried out'. I don't smoke or drink, eat well, am of healthy BMI, walk around 10 miles a day during my commute.

    I have tried Turmeric & Glucosamine for joint health, didn't notice much difference.

    Thank you

    Unfortunately some meds carry unwanted side effects, do you get enough EFA's? Anecdotally I can say that astaxanthin and DMAE were good for my skin and black cumin seed is helpful for my joints.
    My secret? Texting between sets.
