Switching accutane brands

Recommended Posts

Going on 3rd month on Isotrenion. Derm is switching from the brand Clarus to something that will better absorb.  

I wanted to know if it matters if I switch brands in the middle of my course? I had a really bad initial break out and I'm finally starting to become clear...  Don't wanna go through that again!

I started off with Roaccutane for the first two months of my treatment and then got prescribed Ranbaxy Isotretinoin (UK). I'm currently finishing month 5 while on Ranbaxy. The derm and other forums said that the main ingredient is the same, however, as opposed to Roaccutane, Ranbaxy will not cause so much dryness. In terms of side effects I didn't notice much difference - dryness, back and joint pain, tiredness. Hope this helps!
