Generic Accutane is made by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (Amnesteem), Ranbaxy Laboratories, Inc. (Sotret), and Barr Laboratories (Claravis).
 

Is Generic Isotretinoin as Good as Accutane?

All generic medications must undergo certain tests to compare them to brand-name medications. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) then looks at these tests to decide if the generics are equivalent to the brand-name medication and assigns a rating to each one. An "AB" rating means that the FDA has determined that a generic medication is equivalent to a brand-name medication. All of the generic Accutane versions currently available have an "AB" rating, meaning they should be equivalent to the brand-name medication.
 
However, generic medications are allowed to have different inactive ingredients from the brand-name medication. This might include fillers, dyes, or other ingredients that may cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities.
