Product Description

ACCUTANE 20mg (100 pills).

ACCUTANE 20mg is a new prescription acne treatment that allows you to fight acne both inside and out. It’s a brand-new solution for patients age 12 and older who suffer from moderate to severe cystic acne that hasn’t responded well to other treatments. ACCUTANE starts working after just one dose and can help clear your skin more rapidly than other acne medicines available today.

This medication is used to treat severe cystic acne (also known as nodular acne) that has not responded to other treatment (such as 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.

How to use Isotretinoin Capsule

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start using isotretinoin and each time you get a refill. Read and sign a Patient Information/Informed Consent form before you start taking this medication. If you have any questions about isotretinoin, consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking the medication.

Swallow capsules whole. Do not crush or chew them. Isotretinoin is usually taken twice daily for 15-20 weeks, or as directed by your doctor. Directions for most generic forms of isotretinoin state that it should be taken with meals. However, the FDA has indicated that the Absorica brand may be taken with or without food. Food helps increase absorption of this drug into your bloodstream. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more information. Take this drug with a full glass of water, and do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking it.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, weight, and response to treatment.

Your acne may worsen during the first few days of taking this drug, and it may take up to 1-2 months before you notice the full benefit of this medication. If severe acne returns, a second course of treatment may be started after you have stopped taking the drug for 2 months. The manufacturer does not recommend long-term use of isotretinoin. Do not take more than the recommended dose.

It’s important to take isotretinoin capsules as instructed by your doctor.

Dosage and strength

Isotretinoin comes as 10mg or 20mg soft capsules.

The dose of isotretinoin capsules varies from person to person, and depends on your body weight.

The usual starting dose is 0.5mg per kilogram body weight per day (0.5 mg/kg/day). So if you weigh 60kg, your dose will usually start at 30mg a day.

Usually, you take isotretinoin capsules once or twice a day.

Changes to your dose

After a few weeks, your doctor may change your dose of isotretinoin capsules. You may need a higher dose if your acne is not getting better. You may need a lower dose if you have side effects.

Speak to your doctor if you think your dose is too high or too low.

How to take it

Swallow the capsules whole with a drink of water.

Take isotretinoin capsules with food to make sure they work properly. It’s best to take them straight after a meal or snack.

How long to take it for

A treatment course of isotretinoin capsules usually lasts for 16 to 24 weeks (around 4 to 6 months). Acne will usually keep getting better for up to 8 weeks after stopping treatment.

Most people have clear skin after that time, but some will need another round of treatment.

If you forget to take it

If you forget to take the capsules, take them as soon as you remember, unless it’s nearly time for your next dose. In this case, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the usual time.

Never take 2 doses at the same time to make up for a forgotten dose. Never take an extra dose to make up for a missed one.

If you often forget doses, it may help to set an alarm to remind you. You could also ask your pharmacist for advice on other ways to help you remember to take your medicine.
