Can I use obagi nu derm while on roaccutane treatment?!

I'm on my 3rd week of roaccutane 20mg twice a day. Is it okay for me to use the obagi nuderm at the same time? If so, will my face looks so red?? What percent of the retin.a will be the normal for the blender?

Obagi Nu Derm and Accutane

Both the Obagi system and Accutane are individually drying. Combining them could be way too rough and drying for your skin. You want to ask your prescribing physician if he or she would recommend using these together in your specific situation. I personally wouldn't advise it in general.
