Accutane drug is one of the biologically active forms of vitamin A, prescribed for intensive treatment of acne rash in adults and children over 12 years old.
Due to the effect of Accutane drug on the inflamed skin (acne), sebaceous glands begin to release fewer amount of sebum. Thereby, Accutane accelerates the natural process of skin regeneration, so its use helps to treat even the most severe forms of acne successfully.
Pharmaceutical form of Accutane
Accutane medication is released in capsules for oral use
- Accutane 10mg capsules
- Accutane 20mg capsules
- Accutane 40mg capsules
Each Accutane capsule contains active ingredient – Isotretinoin substance. Besides the active substance Isotretinoin, every capsule of Accutane contains excipients, such as: butylated hydroxyanisole, beeswax, edetate disodium, hydrogenated soybean oil flakes, hydrogenated vegetable oil, and soybean oil.
Application and dosage of Accutane
Accutane drug is appointed orally.
Initial dose of Accutane is 0,5mg per kilogram a day (1 capsule of Accutane 10mg – taken once daily).
Accutane maximum daily dose is used in limited time and it is 1mg per 1 kg of body weight.
Maintenance daily dose of Accutane acne medication can vary from 0,1mg to 1mg / kg of body weight a day.
The duration of acne treatment course, and therefore the duration of Accutane use, does not exceed 20 weeks as a rule.
After 20 weeks of regular use of Accutane drug, its clinical efficiency decreases. That’s why, before taking the repeat treatment course with Accutane acne medication, one should take a break of 6-8 weeks.
Accutane capsules should be taken with meals, at once or dividing the common daily Accutane dose into several intakes.
The prescribed dose of Accutane has to be taken with full glass of water, thereby reducing the risk of irritation on esophagus walls, or occurrence of Accutane side effects in gastrointestinal tract.
