Both Roaccutane and Accutane are the name brand made by Roche. It is distributed as Accutane in the USA and as Roaccutane in other parts of the world. Same company, different names.
Generic accutane includes:
They are all isotretinoin and are just as effective as the brand names. Really the only difference is that the generics cost a lot less. They all have the same active ingredient.
I am on 60mg Amnesteem and have no complaints.
Hope this helps
