    Accutaine has terrible side effects. Don’t use it. It’s not worth being acne free

    From personal experience, I have 2 messages to pass along. Firstly, if you know something about an individual (I’m referring to emotional type of issues like bad temper or controlling nature…) you have an achrayus to let someone know, especially when you are asked a direct question. It is not fair to say “he/she is soooo special”. Secondly, if something doesn’t “feel” right, during dating, during engagement, or even during marriage you must say something to someone. Whether it’s a parent or kallah teacher or chosson rebbe. This might be a red flag! It’s probably something that won’t go away.

    Mazal Tov! Hopefully nothing will, but if something doesn’t feel right then discuss it with someone like a parent or kallah teacher. Guys should know this too. You can’t ask too many questions. Speak to your chosson rebbe if you have questions or issues. Many times you will have differences of opinions, discuss things together if u can but if you’re not sure then ask someone. Always daven.

    Oomis, That’s exactly what I’m saying! The young couples getting married do not “get” the full picture. They don’t realize what it means to keep house (shopping,cooking,cleaning,laundry) while in school or learning full time, even before bringing a baby (with all pregnancy related issues) into the mix. They should be enjoying and working on building a strong relationship during shana rishona but so many of them are just too tired and burnt out. Between learning, working, studying, going to vorts, weddings, showers, etc. a few times a week, not sleeping enough it’s a mazal that they survive.

    I think minimum age should be 20. By then you most probably have two years of schooling done, usually the hardest part is over. It’s hard to juggle a new marriage and stay focused on schooling with studying and preparations at the same time. If the guy is in school too then maybe it’s more doable being that they’re basically on the same schedule. But if he’s learning, when he comes home every night he has to be very patient and understanding and may have to take a backseat if she has a heavy school workload, which is extremely tiring for the girls. I think the chosson rebbi should be mentally preparing the boys for this type situation. I also think the kallah teachers should be preparing the girls how to juggle attention to the new husbands while being focused on schooling.

    After 1 week of accutaine the joint pain occurred, then we tested for Lyme and strep…which came back negative. Then I called the dermatologist to rule it out and he said that it definitely is a side effect but it should go away. Well almost two years later the pain still comes and goes periodically. Pain management doctor, after testing and his own research, agrees that it came from accutaine and hopes that over time it will disappear. The acne cure was not worth it, acne came back after all.

    If you google accutaine side effects you find out, too late, about thie side effect of debilitating joint and muscle pains. The dermatologist knew it was coming from accutaine as soon as I questioned if it could be.

    Of course doctors were spoken to and tests were taken to rule out different things like Lyme disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Went to chiropractor and pain management doctors too. Pain comes and goes periodically, especially when it rains, mostly in the upper leg. This began suddenly a few days after starting accutaine, stopped taking it after first trying to cut down the dosage, only for a a few weeks, about two years ago. All I was curious about was if anyone else had similar experiences and what, if any, treatment they did, and if it subsided.

    I started this thread a year ago. I want u to know, I became a huge believer in chiropractic treatment. Four members of my family have been helped by my chiropractor, BH. I now know so many others that he’s helped, too, including a toddler who was scheduled for tubes in her ears for recurring ear infections, but opted to try the chiropractor first and so far only one episode of a slight infection that went away quickly without antibiotics.

    Supposedly, you get your BA in 1 year. I know a few people that are in the program now & a few that already finished with degrees in nursing & (I think) speech. I know a guy that also finished with a degree in social work. I think its intense and costly, but sounds worth it.

    With all the dermatologist warnings and speeches and consultations, it was still very strongly advised. Then the monthly blood tests…all very closely monitored. But once weird symptoms begin, you are not sure right away that it’s a result of the accutaine. Then you are instructed to cut back a little, then a little more….by then you see some good results for the acne and you want to continue the protocol and the blood work comes back fine…….it’s a cycle that works for some and has side effects for others. But even if there are two or three out of every forty or fifty, I think it’s two too many.

    Really dry skin is a given because accutaine dries out all the oils from your body(and that’s probably why you get joint pains). But how do you reverse this side effect?

    Yes, tried all the others, medications, washes, cleanses……, without significant results. Accutaine had almost immediate good results, but now in hindsight, the side effects were not worth it.

    Accutaine was never forced but it was highly recommended. All the necessary blood work was closely monitored, too. But the joint pain was never discussed and after numerous blood tests to rule out Lyme disease…. It dawned on me to ask the dermatologist if this could be a side effect to which the response was yes but it will dissipate after a few weeks. Thank you to the best bubby, and if anyone else has any other good suggestions please do tell. Has anyone tried a chiropractor for help with joint pain?

    Why do dermatologist push accutaine as the wonder drug? Why don’t they warn everyone about every side effect? Does anyone know of any solutions for severe joint pains that wont go away even months after taking accutaine, besides for loads of advil?

    I think that you both need help but I believe that by you taking the first step, you are on the right path to recovery. You are expressing yourself to all of us, hopefully unburdening yourself of some of your guilt feelings, a lot of these feelings coming from your terrible childhood. I hope you are lead to the right “shlichim” so that you, your husband, and your children can be healed quickly. Once again, hatzlocha raba.

    I believe that just like girls have uniform, so should boys. The boys should all wear white shirts and dark pants. I think it makes for a much healthier environment when everyone is more or less dressed the same. I also think that if you dress like a yeshiva bochur you probably/hopefully will act like a yeshiva bochur. I don’t think that changing CC to an all white shirt yeshiva will hurt them at all, if anything, it can only help.

    Middle path, you are right. I thought it would be a great idea to have mesivta boys doing some kriah with elementary kids-I think both would gain from this type of thing. While I’m at it, why not start teaching skills to mesivta age boys, a little electrical, plumbing, accounting….. Why can’t we take the emphasis off of marks and start teaching real every day important subjects. American history is nice to know, but ask the boys Jewish history, do they know our heritage?

    If I were to open a yeshiva I would teach much more musar, way more than the token 15 minutes in the morning. I would teach pirush hameelim-I think it’s especially important before Rosh Hashana/Yom Kippur that boys understand what one is asking from Hashem. you could klapp a hundred Al Cheits and not understand a single one. And also I would teach the appropriate halochos per each Yom Tov. I would make sure that at least once a week there would be time dedicated to chessed-why can’t boys do some packing or delivering of tomchei Shabbos, or why not visit a liitle in the nursing homes or even do a little kiruv? There would definitely have to be some time each day, or at least a few times a week for gym. Most boys are in yeshiva between 10-12 hours per day. There’s still plenty of time for gemarrah and English studies, and why not slow down and delve a little deeper. What’s the big rush? Why not teach the boys about our gedolim of yesteryear, too?
