Accutane (trade name for Isotretinoin) is a powerful drug for acne treatment. The normal treatment duration is four to five months and that generally controls acne for at least a year. Accutane belongs to a class of drugs known as retinoid medications. Retinoid medications relate chemically to Vitamin A, which means that its molecular structure is similar to Vitamin A.
It controls acne by decreasing the amount of oil (sebum) production that is released by the sebaceous glands. Accutane is sold in the form of capsules in doses of 10mg, 20mg, or 40mg which is the only treatment known to stop severe nodular acne.
