Differin On Accuntane?

11 posts in this topic

Hi,everyone . I'm from china, and I want to know that do differin (adapalene gel) interferes with accutane?

In China, doctoers don't use accutane often, i went to lots of doctors',and can't get cured for a long time.Then I met my friend who's now learning medical , he told me to take accutane,and use differin.

i'm on acctune for 40mg/d,and adapalene everynight ,and now my face is very dry,but i can tolerate it.

Because it's clearing up and everthing looks going well.

but i just see that someone say, differin is not recommend when on accutane.

so ,I want to know Do differin weaken accutane's effectiveness? (may longer accutane's course , or cause it easier to relapse,etc), or just make it too dry(so not recommend because many people who can't stand it)

(I consulted a doctor about it some days ago,but he just said that accutane and differin, both of them can treat acne, but he don't know how they interfere each other.)

thank you whistling.gif)

Don't. Accutane is tough enough against your skin, and accutane will give good enough results with the acne battle. There's a reason why one shouldn't use any sort of other anti-acne treatment products while using accutane

RingOfFire is right. Accutane alone is more than enough to beat acne, and adding any other medications to it can increase skin irritation. Although the Accutane pamphlet makes no mention of a possible interaction with that retinoid, most dermatologists would advise against using both at the same time. Just use a gentle cleanser, moisturizer, and lip balm.

I would also advise against using differin after accutane, your skin will be very sensible. It was the most stupid thing I've ever done

Don't use the differin. Do you see a lot of people in china with acne? Do doctors give accutane to severe cases on china?
