topical medication, yes.

oral supplements, yes - currently, vitamin E, vitamin C, optizinc, calcium, magnesium - not primarily to help prevent breakouts but to help prevent side-effects.

Here's what you might consider taking:

Vitamin C...take it during accutane but probably its going to only help your skin after months of supplements

Vitamin E... just another anti-oxidant...

Omega 3...helps with joint pains..good for skin too

Zinc...strong immune system=fight acne better

b5...what the heck might aswell...
