Storage Information

Absorica should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and light. It is best to keep it in its original packaging to avoid accidentally exposing a pregnant woman to the drug; the packaging very clearly warns pregnant women to avoid it.

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your dose of Absorica as scheduled, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. In this case, skip the one you missed and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.

Is There a Generic Version?

Generic isotretinoin products are not technically interchangeable with Absorica because of absorption differences. Therefore, there are no generic versions (see Generic Absorica for more information).

Who Makes Absorica?

Absorica is manufactured by Galephar P R, Inc., for Ranbaxy Laboratories, Inc.

Available Strengths
