My derm told me to discontinue all topical retinoids when starting accutane. Check with your derm on that one. I've never had scarring so I couldn't tell you if they help. Sorry! Check the scar forum ;)

Also, remember that while on accutane your skin is very thin and all scars look deeper. After accutane your skin will "fill out" a little more and scars will look better.

Yeah, I asked this here and everyone says it's better to not take anything. Just cleanse.

But I remember someone here a while ago was on Tazorac while on Accutane so it depends on what your doctor says.
