Myorisan Medication Information

Taking MyorisanTM (isotretinoin) for 15 to 20 weeks can help permanently clear up severe nodular acne. This prescription medication comes in the form of a capsule and is taken twice daily with food. It is approved for use in adults and children as young as 12 years old. Myorisan is a generic version of Accutane®, a brand-name drug that is no longer manufactured.
 
Myorisan is a type of retinoid, and works by decreasing the amount of an oily substance that contributes to acne. This drug can cause serious side effects and is extremely dangerous for pregnant women. As a result, there are strict rules and regulations for prescribing and dispensing it.
 
Although this acne medication is generally well tolerated, it is not suitable for everyone. Before using Myorisan, make sure your healthcare provider has up-to-date information on your medical history and a list of your current medications. In particular, let your healthcare provider know if you have problems like depression or osteoporosis.
