First of all, you must know the function of this medicine.
Accutane/Sotret/ Isotretinoin is a form of Vitamin-A that is used to treat Nodular & Cystic acne and pimples. It reduces the amount of oil released by oil glands in your skin, and helps your skin renew itself more quickly. Isotretinoin/Sotret/Accutane is used to treat severe nodular acne that has not responded to other treatments, including antibiotics.
Now , i wanna tell you many things about this medicine. Actually when i was suffering from Rosacea then my dermatologist suggested me to use Acutret 30Mg tablets. So, i bought this medicine from local drug store. Then i read many warnings description written on the tablets:-
- First of all, this medicine is not for married people as it can cause birth defects which is clearly written on the description. So , if you are pregnant or may likely to become pregnant then please avoid this type of medicine for skin treatment.
