Accutane and meals

Thank you for your question. Majority of brands of isotretinoin needs to be taken with a fatty meal to maximize absorption of the medication, and some brands, such as Absorica, may be taken on an empty stomach because fat molecules are already within the medication. In my opinion, Accutane should be taken with the fattiest meal of the day and a tall glass of water. I highly recommend you consult with your prescribing dermatologist regarding your medication. Take care and good luck.
