Are All Brands of Isotretinoin the Same and Have the Same Side Effects

+2

All brands of Isotretinoin are very similar, except for Absorica, which is a newer branded version of Isotretinoin. According to studies it has a better absorbency rate, especially when it's taken with lower fat foods than other brands of Isotretinoin. All brands have the same side effects though, most of which consist of dryness and skin irritation.
