How it works
Accutane reduces the amount of oil produced by the skin that leads to hardening of the skin surface.
Guidelines for Usage
Follow the dosage instructions provided by your doctor or as mentioned in the instruction booklet/product label.
Always use only as prescribed. Never exceed the dosage.
The capsule is to be taken twice a day with a full glass of water, milk or any non alcoholic beverage. Take care that you swallow the capsule whole without breaking, crushing or chewing it unless you have been advised accordingly.
Doctors recommend that you swallow the whole tablet/capsules with a glass of water unless it is specified that it can be broken or chewed.
NOTE: Use only if prescribed to you and intended for your use. Do not share with others.
Accutane must be used in a cycle with a 2 month rest period after using the drug. Even during this off period, your acne will continue to get better. And after the 2 month rest period, if you still have severe acne, then inform your doctor who may prescribe a second course of treatment or a longer rest period.
It is common for people to forget their dosage times and miss doses.
Do not panic if you have missed a dose.
Instead, skip the missed dose and take your next dose at the scheduled time. Do not double up or take more than what the doctor has prescribed.
