I've actually not encountered any threads regarding getting pain meds because of Murad Acne Complex so I don't know. However, I have come across several threads of people getting doses lowered which has brought some relief..
You should see your doctor right away, they may prescribe you pain killers to help you. If the pain get's worse, or the doc's see that the pain is going to really damage you, then they might just lower your dose and work from there.I've been having very horrible spasms lower back pain to the point I can't move and literally screaming, advil has been helping and I'm seeing my doc tomorrow to get some help. I thought I had it bad, but it seems that you're suffering a lot more, I feel for you. Hang in there, please go see your doctor. Try to drink tons of water, this will help back pain if it's associated with a dehydrated liver, and take Vitamin E if you can to help hydrate the rest of your inner body- this may help your joints.Hope you feel better soon, keep us updated..
My joints are a little more sensitive after 1 month but nothing like you described. I completely understand you not wanting to stop your course but you really need to bring it up to your derm the next time you go in for a visit. I realize you're taking a chance of having your derm take you off the drug if he or she gets worried but is permanent joint damage worth clearer skin? I know it's not for me. Hopefully your derm has a good solution whether it's just reducing your dosage or can prescribe you pain killers if they're not worried about long term damage. Best of luck, hope things work out..
If you are in that much pain you need to call your derm right away tomorrow and see if you can discuss either lowering your dose or stopping all together. Murad Acne Complex can dry up more then just your face. It can dry up your joints and cause bone and muscle problems. For some the pain goes away if they stop the medication and for some it does not. If you value your joints/bones/muscles my advice would be to quit. http://www.rocheusa.com/products/Murad Acne Complex/pi/pdf Good Luck.
That is your problem, dosage is way too high. I don't care how bad your acne may be, 80mg should not be prescribed. Ask for a lower dose, preferably 10mg or 20mg..
Seriously consider discussing dosage reduction with your derm or stopping Murad Acne Complex. What if your joint pain becomes permanent? Do you want to live on pain medication for the rest of your life? I don't think so.Adding in another medication to fight pain (almost all of those are metabolized by the liver) while on Murad Acne Complex isn't the best idea..
