Accutane or Generic

brand name costs more.

generic costs less.

that is the ONLY difference. You would practically have to beg the pharmacists at my local pharmacy for brand name because they want you to save money.

I have taken both the brand name (Roche) back when there were no generics, and a generic brand called Claravis. They both worked fine, but the generic was substantially cheaper. The FDA approved isotretinoin generics (Claravis, Sotret, Amnesteem) are very well designed with nearly identical absorption profiles. The only reason to choose any one over another is if you are allergic to the binders or dyes in a particular brand.
