What is accutane?

Accutane is a medication that is prescribed to treat severe types of acne. It is a form of Vitamin A belonging to a class of medications known as retinoids, which are used to treat skin problems. It works by decreasing the amount of facial oil being released, in order to help the skin renew itself quicker. Accutane is typically only prescribed if the acne has been unresponsive to other treatment options.

  • Swollen lips or eyelids
  • Diarrhea
  • Hair thinning

Are there any specific instructions for taking Accutane?

When providing an online Accutane prescription, your doctor will clearly outline how to take it, and the correct dosage to follow based on your age, severity of the condition, and any other medical conditions present. Once a prescription for Accutane has been provided it must be filled within seven days and the online doctor will not provide more than thirty days’ worth of the medication at a time.

It is important to take Accutane with food and a full glass of water, to ensure it does not dissolve in the food pipe.

What warnings are associated with Accutane?

There are several warnings a doctor will make you aware of when providing an online Accutane prescription. These include:

  • Avoiding vitamin supplements that contain vitamin A.
  • Not donating blood as it could cause birth defects if given to a pregnant woman.
  • Avoiding use of wax hair removers or laser hair therapy while taking Accutane and for six months after, as it could cause scarring.
  • Exercising caution about sunlight exposure, as Accutane will increase the body’s sensitivity to sunlight.
  • An allergy warning. It is possible that in certain individuals, Accutane can cause a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms of this include hives, a swollen face, tongue, lips, or throat.
