Buy Accutane (Isotretinoin) 10mg and 20mg Capsules Online


Accutane is a brand name for Isotretinoin, a medicine that is primarily used to treat acute acne. A physician may prescribe this drug if other acne treatments have failed. It's offered only on prescription by certified pharmacies under the iPLEDGE program.

Isotretinoin is also sometimes used for off-label purposes. These include the treatment of certain skin conditions, including ichthyosis. Moreover, the drug has proven effective in the prevention of squamous-cell carcinoma.


How Does Accutane (Isotretinoin) Work?

In acne, sebaceous glands produce excessive sebum (a thick and oily matter). This surplus sebum combines with dead skin cells, plugging the follicle.

It's yet to be discovered how exactly Isotretinoin works so far. However, the drug has been shown to reduce both sebum production and sebaceous gland size. That not only reduces acne but also helps the skin to regenerate itself quickly.

How to Take Accutane Capsules

Take Accutane capsules twice daily for 4-5 months. The correct dosage range is between 0.25-0.5mg/kg body weight. But, your physician may prescribe a maximum dosage, depending on your condition.

Don't crush or chew the capsules. Take them whole by mouth with plenty of water (a full glass) unless your doctor advises you otherwise. You should not lie down for at least ten minutes after taking the medication.

Before taking Accutane, carefully read the drug guide provided by your doctor. Discuss any concerns you may have with the healthcare provider. You must also sign a Patient Information form before consuming this medicine. Follow your caregiver's instructions keenly for the best results.

Note: The acne may worsen after a week or two of taking Accutane. Do not worry. It might take up to 2 months before you begin to see the desired results.

What If You Miss a Dose or Overdose?

If you miss an Accutane dose, skip it and make sure you take the next dose on time. Do not take a double dose to make up for the missed dose. In case you overdose, seek medical help or contact the Poison Help line immediately.

Accutane overdose symptoms include but are not limited to headache, stomach pain, and dizziness. An overdose can also cause swollen or cracked lips and loss of coordination or balance.
