Isotroin helps treat acne by reducing the production of sebum (a natural substance) that causes acne. Even if it doesn't seem to be working, keep taking it because it usually takes a few weeks before you notice a difference. Although acne can occasionally worsen before getting better, with proper use, your skin will become clearer. This eliminates acne-causing bacteria and stops the development of spots or pimples. As your skin clears up from acne, this medication will help elevate your confidence and uplift your mood.
Consult your doctor once more if, after a few weeks, you don't notice any improvement. Isotroin should be used in the dosage and time frame recommended by your doctor. Even though it might take a few weeks for your symptoms to go away, keep taking the medication as directed to reap the greatest benefits. Take it with food, preferably at the same time each day to avoid a missed dose.
Do not double the dose. If, however, it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your regular schedule. Isotroin should be taken as soon as possible if a dose is missed.
If a medication overdose is suspected, seek medical attention right away. A headache, dizziness, nausea, stomach pain, tingling and stinging in the skin, and other symptoms of overdose may occur.
