Question starting accutane, what can i use with it?

I am about to start Accutane. Can I use Retin A cream with it? Is it ok to use a daily multivitamin while on Accutane?

Also what is a good cleanser and moisturizer to use with it?

You're not suppossed to use any topicals with accutance. But I used Retina mico quite a bit at the beginning of my course without any problems... That's up to you though... but unless you have it left over, I highly doubt your derm will prescribe it to you.

A good oil free moisturizer is Cetaphil. This is what derms often give out as free samples.

NO! Don't take multivitamins. Multivitams have vitamin A. Accutane is a controlled form of vitamin A poisoning. You will have an overabundance of vitamin A in your system while on accutane. Taking more vitamin A, will increase the likelihood of side effects and serious problems. If you read the yellow form you signed, it will tell you this.
