What is Accutane?

Accutane 10 mg Cap
Drug Name: ISOTRETINOIN-ORAL
Other Brand Names: Accutane, Amnesteem, Claravis, Sotret
Uses: This medication is used to treat severe cystic acne (also known as nodular acne) that has not responded to other treatment (e.g., benzoyl peroxide or clindamycin applied to the skin or tetracycline or minocycline taken by mouth). It belongs to a class of drugs known as retinoids. It works by decreasing facial oil (sebum) production. High amounts of sebum can lead to severe acne. If left untreated, severe acne may cause permanent scarring.
