Accutane and Concerta

There are not reported interactions between these medications so there is no formal advisement against taking them together. However, any side effects should be discussed with your physician so that changes can be made if needed, including taking them at different times of day, etc. However, formally, there is nothing to say you cannot take them together. I have many patients who are on Accutane and some form of ADHD medications, but usually my patients are on either 20 or 40mg of Accutane.
