Patient :Would taking plant sterols such as Benecol yogurt drinks affect absorption of isotretinoin (Accutane)? I've read that they can affect absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, especially in females. But I also know isotretinoin can raise cholesterol (mine is slightly raised). What would you advise? I don't want to make my isotretinoin less effective.
