Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor.
Accutane contains retinoic acid group drug. It is often used in the treatment of acne not responding to the antibiotics like azithromycin/ doxycycline.
It acts by destroying the sebaceous glands which are responsible for producing acne.
I advise my patients to take this drug at night time after meals.
Along with it, take plenty of water.
Do not pop out the acne.
I hope this helps.
