Accutane after Gastric Bypass
I had gastric bypass surgery in February 2012 and am starting Accutane 20 mg as of today. I was wondering if I will malabsorb the Accutane since I've had the surgery? I have told my dermatologist of my surgery and she still wanted to start me at the 20 mg dosage.

Hi,
How are you? After oral administration of isotretinoin, the resulting  metabolites form in the plasma and eventually form into conjugates. Having a gastric bypass would not be a great problem in their absorption. It is best that you take the medicine as prescribed. Take care and do keep us posted.
