Accutane (oral iso-tretinoin) is similar to some of the topical retinoids we prescribe. However, because it is taken orally, it can have more serious side effects and can cause serious birth defects. Because of these possible side effects we do not prescribe Accutane. If you have tried topical medicines and oral antibiotics and they aren't working we can definitely help you find a local primary care doctor or dermatologist that does prescribe Accutane.
