hi, thanks for posting.
accoutane is indicated in case of severe acne
called nodulocystic acne
, however it is being used in less severe types as well if other therapies fail to give the desired result.
Accutane decreases the size and secretion of the sebaceous glands, normalizes follicular keratinization, inhibits P. acnes growth and exerts an anti-inflammatory effect. But initial flareup can occur so oral azithromycin
or short course o fprednisone can be used at the beginning of isotretinoin
therapy to control the initial acne flare-up.
Oral doxycyclin or minocyclin should not be used with accutane because of the potential side effects.
since accutane can can cause side effects take it under doctor's prescription and get lipid profile
, liver function tests once a month.
hope this helps you.
All the best
