Accutane is isotretinoin, and is the drug of choice for acne. It typically works well in assisting in removing acne.
However, like any medication, it should never be taken without the supervision of a dermatologist. Remember – what works for someone else may not work for you, and may actually do more harm than good.
Self-medication can be harmful for your skin and health, and a qualified doctor will be able to understand your particular skin and body type, lifestyle, and therefore whether isotretinoin will be suitable for you.
