Details :

  • Isotretinoin capsules are a very effective treatment for severe acne(spots).
  • This medicine can have serious side effects, however, so it must be prescribed and supervised by a doctor.

Key facts :

  • Isotretinoin capsules start to work after a week to 10 days.
  • Isotretinoin capsules work very well - 4 out of 5 people who use them have clear skin after 4 months.
  • Your skin may become very dry and sensitive to sunlight during treatment. Using lip balm and moisturisers will help.
  • If you're a woman, it's very important not to become pregnant while using isotretinoin capsules and for at least 1 month after stopping. This is because isotretinoin can harm an unborn baby.
  • Isotretinoin capsules are also called by the brand names Roaccutane and Rizuderm.
  • Who can and can't take isotretinoin capsules
  • Isotretinoin capsules are for teenagers and adults with severe acne.
  • Don't give isotretinoin capsules to children under the age of 12 years or before puberty.
  • Isotretinoin capsules aren't suitable for some people.

Don't take isotretinoin capsules if you :

  • Have had an allergic reaction to isotretinoin, soya (the capsules contain soya) or any other medicines in the past
  • Have an inherited digestive disorder called fructose intolerance (the capsules contain sorbitol)

To make sure isotretinoin capsules are safe for you, tell your doctor if you :

  • Have had a mental health illness like depression
  • Are pregnant or think you could be, or you're breastfeeding
  • Have ever had an allergic reaction to isotretinoin or any other medicine
  • Have liver or kidney disease
  • Have high levels of cholesterol or other fats in your blood
  • Have high levels of vitamin A
  • Have Crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis
  • If you have diabetes, talk to your doctor before beginning treatment with isotretinoin capsules. You may need extra monitoring while you take isotretinoin capsules as this medicine can cause a rise in blood sugar levels.

Side effects :

  • Like all medicines, isotretinoin capsules can cause side effects, although not everyone gets them. Side effects will usually go away when you stop treatment.
  • Dry skin and lips are very common side effects. For safety, don't have any waxing, dermabrasion, or laser skin treatment while you're taking this medicine and for at least 6 months after you stop, as this could cause scarring or skin irritation.
