Question about antacid's...

Recommended Posts

If you take an antacid like Prilosec or Pepcid which is supposed to reduce the amount of acid in your stomach, will it have any affect on the absorption of Accutane? Also, how far apart should you take the two from each other?

Though I am sure there are some people who have taken both, This is something you need to discuss with either the pharmacist or your derm. Esspecially if you have a hx of stomach issues or it is just starting. Make sure you read the rx info.

Call your derm or pharmacy.
