Can I use glycolic cleanser while on accutane?

Can I use my MD formulations glycolic cleanser while Im on accutane or will it be to harsh? Cant seem to find any info on that when googleing. I have used that cleanser for years now and my skin has gotten quite used to it but dont know if that counts or not.

Maybe when you first start your treatment it will be okay, but your skin might become too sensitive for it. I had to switch my scrub for a moisturizing face wash and my glycolic treatment for a gentle moisturizer... Most doctors won't recommend using any kind of a "treatment" product while on accutane. Everyone I know has needed gentle, moisturizing products.
