Accutane: The Best Medication for Treating Acne

Posted on 11th Sep 2014 @ 11:58 AM

Accutane or Roaccutane, as it is also known, is a common medication prescribed by doctors and dermatologists for severe and nodular acne problem that does not respond well to other forms of treatment. It is a potential drug that has a high success rate in treating acne. It is a vitamin A derivative that is administered orally in pill form with a meal that contains an adequate form of fat normally for 15-20 weeks, although it is sometimes prescribed at lower dosages for up to six months or longer.

Accutane is simply a brand name for the generic drug isotretinoin. It works by shrinking the oil glands in the skin, thereby virtually stopping oil production. When patients stop taking Accutane after four to six months, the oil glands may grow back, but most patients see a permanent elimination of acne. Most other acne-controlling medicines are antibacterial agents, which are effective only if used daily.

Taking Accutane with food increases the absorption of the medicine. The more Accutane one takes, the greater the chance of cure. At the lowest doses, there are almost no side effects at all. The dose of the medication needs to be adjusted to strike a balance between effectiveness and side effects. Isotretinoin may also be used to treat other skin diseases as determined by your doctor.

Accutane is an oral pill that has been in the market since 1982 and is manufactured by the pharmaceutical company Hoffman-LaRoche. Accutane helps to normalize the keratinization or shedding of dead skin cells from the skin. It is normally prescribed in dosages of 10 to 40 milligrams a day and in most cases it must be taken for four to five months to be effective.
