What is Accutane?

The word “accutane” is the trade name for isotretinoin, a medication that is structurally almost the same as natural vitamin A, and is known as the vitamin A retinoid. It is a powerful drug used to help reduce the amount of oil released by oil glands in your skin, and is usually prescribed to treat severe acne, but only after other acne medications have been tried, with unsuccessful results.
