accutane + tretinoin cream

i've been on accutane for 2 months almost. i went for a derm visit a few days ago and he prescribed me tretinoin cream to get rid of the white/black heads. is it ok to do both at the same time? i can't find anything using google search that talks about the two being used together. is anyone else using this combination?

note: i search came up with a similar thread and everyone on the thread says not to use it. seems weird my derm would prescribe me it right now. bit skeptical.

My derm told me when I was on accutane that it depends what dosage your own. If your own a high/normal dose, then your skins probably too sensitive to use it. If your own a low dose then it may be ok. It really depends on your skin.
