Can I take beta blockers while on Isotretinoin?

Patient: Can I take beta blockers while on Isotretinoin?

 

 

Doctor: A drug interaction is a situation in which a substance (usually another drug) affects the activity of a drug when both a re administered together. Typically, interactions between drugs come to mind (drug-drug interaction). However, interactions may also exist between drugs and foods (drug-food interactions), as well as drugs and medicinal plants or herbs (drug-plant interactions). Interactions are often specific to a person’s health condition, habits or constitution.Beta blockers have no known drug interaction with Isotretinoin, but unless your present medical history is known, no specific advice can be given. Please visit your treating physician and confirm if taking these two medicines together should be okay for you.
