Accutane by the well-known pharmaceutical company Dragon Pharma, is an oral drug to treat acne. The main active ingredient of Accutane is Isotretinoin, a retinoid which is a form of Vitamin A and is naturally found in the body in small amounts. The drug was initially developed back in 1982 when the doctor who developed it received an award for the discovery of the drug and also for its use to treat cystic acne. Isotretinoin is also used in some cases to treat certain skin cancers and skin diseases.

Effects of the drug

The primary indication for the use of Isotretinoin is to reduce the appearance of bad cystic acne and to encourage the skin to replenish itself quicker. However, Accutane is also used to combat moderate to severe acne breakouts that can occur with prolonged use of anabolic steroids. Androgenic increases that occur from the use of steroids will usually increase the chance of acne in oily parts of the skin (face, chest and back), especially if someone is genetically predisposed to the condition. The action of Accutane involves reducing the amount of oil that is released by the oil glands in all areas of the skin. Therefore, Accutane is an effective drug to reduce steroid acne.

How to take it

For general acne breakouts, the recommended dosage of Accutane is prescribed individually by a dermatologist but is generally anywhere up to 160mg per day. It should be taken with food for a certain length of time and sometimes the course of treatment may need to be repeated. Those who take Accutane to treat steroid acne however usually only take about 10-20mg daily. The duration of use for them is normally no longer than 6-8 weeks.

Negative effects

Isotretinoin can potentially cause some reactions in the skin. Side effects include dry mucous membranes, itching, skin rash and Cheilitis. In some rare cases, photophobia, conjunctivitis or hearing loss may occur. Do not take Isotretinoin if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have liver or kidney damage, have an individual intolerance to Isotretinoin or take antibiotics of the tetracycline group during the period of treatment.
