Amnesteem, known generically as isotretinoin, is an oral prescription form of Vitamin A that is used to treat severe nodular acne by reducing the amount of oil that skin glands release. It also helps the skin to renew itself more quickly and is prescribed when other treatments have not been successful in treating the condition. Amnesteem may be prescribed for additional purposes not listed here as deemed appropriate by a physician.
