DUTIN – 20 (Isotretinoin 20 mg) 3 X 10 Bilster

Isotretinoin is a medication primarily used to treat severe acne that hasn’t responded to other treatments. It is a derivative of vitamin A and works by reducing the production of sebum, an oily substance that can lead to acne. Isotretinoin is known for its effectiveness in treating acne, but it also comes with potential side effects, including dry skin, lips, and eyes, as well as an increased sensitivity to sunlight. Additionally, isotretinoin is known to cause birth defects if taken during pregnancy, so women of childbearing age must use effective contraception while taking the medication. Regular monitoring and supervision by a healthcare professional are essential when using isotretinoin due to its potential side effects and risks.
