As a long-acting acne medication, Accutane® (isotretinoin) may help to treat certain types of acne in one 15- to 20-week course. This prescription medication is specifically approved to treat severe nodular acne that has not responded well to other treatments. Accutane is available as a capsule and is typically taken twice a day with food. Prior to taking it, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
