Accutane (isotretinoin) is a vitamin A derivative used to treat severe nodular or cystic acne. It was traditionally given only when other treatments failed, but has grown in popularity because of its effectiveness.
Less frequently it is used to combat other skin conditions and certain types of cancer.
Who Uses Accutane?
Accutane can be used by any adult suffering from severe nodular or cystic acne. Teenagers are sometimes prescribed Accutane if other treatments don't work, but are more prone to certain side effects and require special consideration by a physician.
Where other treatments fail to clear up severe acne, Accutane often succeeds spectacularly. However, this medication does carry some risk. Patients should read the information that comes with the product in entirety before using.
How does it Work?
As Accutane builds up in the system, the size of oil glands and the amount of oil they produce is greatly reduced. The reduction of oil also reduces the amount of bacteria in the skin that cause nodular acne. It also inhibits the production of skin cells inside pores, which helps prevent clogging, and acts as an anti-inflammatory.
How is it Taken?
Accutane comes in capsule or tablet form. Dosage is typically started low and gradually increased. It is not unusual for dosage to be adjusted throughout treatment according to patient response.
It is typically taken twice a day with food and a full glass of liquid. It should not be chewed or otherwise crushed.
A missed dose should be skipped entirely.
Many patients experience a brief worsening of acne right after starting treatment. This is normal and will not last. Most patients see dramatic improvement within 30 days. For many patients the improvement is permanent, even after treatment stops. About 30% of patients experience relapses and may need to repeat treatment periodically.
