Medicated Dandruff Shampoo on Accutane


I'm on Accutane right now and I use a medicated dandruff shampoo for my hair. I heard that the shampoo could be beneficial for my type of acne too; is it safe to use or is it irritating?

Thanks for your help :D

i don't know about prescription strength but i asked the dermatologist what i should use if my scalp started to get dry (read some people say they had that problem here) and he suggested head and shoulders. not sure if they have different active ingredients or if the concentration is just higher in prescription shampoo though so i have no idea.
