Accutane Generics

Accutane generics such as Amnesteem, Claravis and Sotret have resulted in serious side effects and injuries.

Why are there Accutane Generics

Accutane has been sold in a variety of generic forms. Most prescription drugs are protected by patents. When the patent expires, other drug companies can start to sell generic versions of the original drug.

A generic drug is required to include the same active ingredients as the original medicine. Although the FDA uses the word "identical" to describe generic drugs, this is a legal concept and does not mean the drugs are 100% identical. But they are very similar, if not identical, and they contain the same active ingredients.

Generic Accutane Types

After the patent on Accutane expired, generic versions started to become available. Here is a list of some generic versions of Accutane:

The most common generic forms of Accutane are Amnesteem, Claravis and Sotret.

Generic Accutane Generic Side Effects

Isotretinoin is the active ingredient in Accutane. This means that all of the generic forms of Accutane contain isotretinoin.

Because all the generic forms of Accutane are essentially "identical" to the original Accutane, all of them can cause the same side effects as Accutane. In other words, they are all just as dangerous as Accutane.
