All Trans Retinoic Acid

Isotretinoin also known as Trans Retinoic Acid is used to treat severe, disfiguring nodular acne. It should be used only after other acne medications or antibiotics have been tried and have failed to help the acne. Isotretinoin might also be used to treat other skin diseases as determined by your doctor.

Isotretinoin should not be used to treat women who are able to bear children unless other forms of treatment have been tried first and have failed. Isotretinoin should not be taken during pregnancy because it causes birth defects in humans.

If you are able to have children, it is very important that you read, understand, and follow the pregnancy warnings for isotretinoin.
