Add some moisture
Consider putting together a go-bag full of moisturizers, lip balms, and eye drops to use while taking ABSORICA LD because it could cause dryness.
ABSORICA LD™ (pronounced AB-SORE-I-KAH EL-DEE) is an isotretinoin medication for persistent severe (nodular) acne that features an innovative technology. It may feel like breakouts are all that people see when they look at you—like your true self is being hidden. But there may be a way to define you on your terms. ABSORICA LD can help you reveal the real you by achieving clearer skin in 5 months.
Delaying treatment for persistent severe (nodular) acne may have permanent consequences for your skin. Beyond painful breakouts, redness, or swelling, acne may increase your chances of forming scars. Finding an effective treatment for your persistent severe (nodular) acne may help you avoid these negative effects and boost self-perception.
ABSORICA LD can harm your unborn baby. Avoid ABSORICA LD if pregnant. ABSORICA LD can cause serious mental health problems including depression and psychosis. See additional safety information below.
ABSORICA LD is a prescription medication used in patients 12 years of age and older for the treatment of severe nodular acne that cannot be cleared up by any other acne treatments, including antibiotics.
Do not change between ABSORICA and ABSORICA LD or other isotretinoin products.
