Accufine is an oral product produced by Healing Pharma. The active ingredient is called Isotretinoin, also known as Accutane, is a type of retinoid which is naturally found in the body in small amounts. Isotretinoin was first developed in 1982 and the doctor responsible for its development received the inventor’s award for both the discovery and use to treat cystic acne. In addition, it is used in rare cases for certain skin cancers and skin diseases.
Effectiveness of Isotretinoin
The drug is primarily used to treat bad cases of cystic acne and to help the skin renew itself more rapidly. Accutane works by reducing the amount of oil released by the oil glands in the skin. Since the chances of acne are increased with anabolic steroid use, and bodybuilding requires looking good (especially for those who compete), many athletes will turn to Accutane for bouts of acne that appear on parts of the skin that have a lot of oil glands (face, chest and back).
It is the androgenic increases associated with steroids that will trigger increased acne. This is especially true for those genetically prone to the condition. Also, the hormonal changes can trigger acne as well, such as increased testosterone levels.
Studies show that the majority of users are happy with the results of using this drug, indicating that nearly all acne is cleared by using Accutane.
Recommendations for use
Bodybuilders and athletes typically dose between 10-20mg per day for six to eight weeks. For the general public fighting acne breakouts, doses may be much higher and go up to 150mg per day (as prescribed by their physician). Accutane should be taken with food and in some cases, the course of treatment may need to be repeated (depending on the severity of the acne).
With the use of Isotretinoin, dermatological reactions may occur, such as dry mucous membranes, itching, skin rash and Cheilitis. In some cases, photophobia, conjunctivitis or hearing loss are likely.
Contraindications include pregnancy, breastfeeding, individual intolerance to Isotretinoin, taking antibiotics of the tetracycline group during the period of treatment. You should reject taking Accutane if you have existing liver and kidney damage, pancreatitis or hypervitaminosis.
