Can anyone name the Accutane brands. Accutane is the original name of the drug, right?

Right now I'm on Amnesteem. How does that compare to real Accutane? Or is there no difference.

The generic brands of accutane are called amnesteem, sotret, and claravis. (the true drug name of all of these is isotretinoin) They are the same as accutane....in order to be marketed as generics, the FDA requires them to be proven to be equivalent to the brand name drug. The only things that can be different in generics are the dyes or fillers, which of course are the inactive ingredients.
