Why isn't Absorica drying me out?
Doctor Answers 1
Thank you for your question. In my experience, patients don't have to experience dryness for the medication to prove effective. Absorica is still isotretinoin, which is similar to the generic products, but the difference is that Absorica has a fat molecule within the medication which allows maximum absorption of the medication without being taken with a fatty meal. I highly recommend you consult with your prescribing dermatologist regarding your questions and concerns. Take care and good luck.
