Question: Taking Acutane for someone with ulcerative colitis?
My 20 year old daughter has had ulcerative colitis (pancolitis) for 2 years and would like to try a low dose (10mg qd) of Acutane to help clear up her acne. Is this a wise choice? Or could it potentially cause an acute flare-up of UC?
There are different studies showing different risks of Accutane with respect to IBD. It's best to discuss this with your GI doctor.
