Patient : Hi. I am a 16 year old male. I currently take Decutan for acne treatment which contains the chemical isotretinoin. It is marketed as roaccutane in the US. When I un, my legs feel a bit heavy and I also feel pain in my muscles below the kneecaps.I am currently doing my exams so exercise is limited and definitely not the cause of the pain. Is it caused by the Decutan? Are there any other possible causes?
