Accutane (also called isotretinoin) was an oral medication used to treat severe acne (nodulo-cystic acne). In 1999, drug maker Hoffmann-La Roche stopped production and sales of the Accutane brand.

Generic versions of isotretinoin are still available from other manufacturers, with a prescription from your doctor. Manditory registration, patient counseling and reporting in the online sytem called "iPledge" is also required in order for your doctor to prescribe isotretinoin. The iPledge program is designed to help prevent the use of isotretinoin during pregnancy, due to the drug's high risk of birth defects.
