Isotretinoin

Drug Info for isotretinoin

Isotretinoin is used to treat severe recalcitrant nodular acne (a certain type of severe acne) that has not been helped by other treatments, such as antibiotics. Isotretinoin is in a class of medications called retinoids. It works by slowing the production of certain natural substances that can cause acne.

Isotretinoin is available in capsule form and is used to treat severe nodular acne. It works by reducing the amount of oil released by glands in your skin and helps your skin to renew itself more quickly. Common side effects may include dryness of your skin, lips, eyes or nose. You may also experience nosebleeds.
