Peanut Allergy & Accutane?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I was scheduled to start my course of Accutane this week until I just looked at the package and realized that the pills contain peanut oil. I don't have a peanut allergy but my boyfriend does, and it's a life threatening one. Because his allergy is so severe I don't eat anything with peanuts or peanut oil, just to be cautious. So now I won't be taking the Accutane brand of isotretinoin, and I'm HOPING there's another brand I can take. I just briefly searched the net and discovered that the Beacon brand doesn't have peanut oil in it. Is anyone familair with this matter? I've suffered from acne since I was about 11-12 years old, pretty much from puberty onwards, and I've been wanting to go on Accutane for a while now in the hopes that I would FINALLY have beautiful, clear skin. So I'm absolutely devistated that acne mediaction of all things has to contain peanut oil! grrrr! I'll be going in to my pharmacy within the next couple of days to discuss the issue with them, but I just thought I'd throw the topic out there. Thanks!
