Accutane vs Amnesteem

I went to the derm. last week to see if I could get on Accutane. He said ok, no problem and warned me of the side effects. So I turn my prescription in and recieve the medicine a couple days later. When I get home and open the package up, it says Amnesteem. I'm like whoa, this ain't what I wanted. So after looking it up I find out it is the generic version of Accutane.

I'm just seeing if anybody else has been (or is on it now) and does it have the same effects and rusults?

Thanks

Re: Accutane vs Amnesteem

I am also on Amnesteem. In theory it should be exactly like accutane in terms of the makeup of the drug, but in practice we'll have to wait and see...I mean, my face is clearing up but it hasnt been long enough to see for sure. Good luck

Re: Accutane vs Amnesteem

My derm said she would only prescribe Accutane and Amnesteem, no other generics. I wouldn't worry about getting the Amnesteem, but I would question any other names of generics. There may be enough of a difference with the other brands that it's the reason why myderm won't prescribe them.

Originally the prescription was for Accutane without substitutions. The pharmacy had to call the derm to make a substituton to Amnesteem. The derm didn't write the prescription for Amnesteem originally because she wanted to have the option to tell the pharmacy exactly which brand of generic. When I talked to the pharmacy, they said the prescription could be written out for Amnesteem without subsitutions and they could not use another generic.
