Using Benzoyl Peroxide on Accutane is a big NO. Call your dermatologist if you want something topical to use in combination with Accutane. In the meantime, stop using that stuff.

Your dermatologist prescribed them both together?!?? I've never heard of that. I know topicals like Cleocin-T, Erythromycin and Klaron have been used with Accutane in the past.

I was prescribed benzoyl peroxide (night) + vitamin A acid cream (morning) this while taking 80mg of accutane.

I have decided to only take benzoyl peroxide simply to lower the chances of breakouts and will stop using it once my skin is dry enough.

heh i got no idea why its a big NO. mayb its personal stuffs...

i live in singapore, i went to a derm in Hougang.

guess i shall get a new BP cream then.. or i'll wait till i go back to ask abt it, since i have to do a compulsory blood test for safety sake aft 2mths.
