Yes you can use shampoo.
What should I avoid while taking isotretinoin?
Do not take vitamin supplements containing vitamin A while you are taking isotretinoin.
Do not donate blood while taking isotretinoin and for at least 30 days after you stop taking it. Donated blood that is later given to pregnant woman could lead to birth defects in her baby if the blood contains any level of isotretinoin.
Do not use wax hair removers or have dermabrasion or laser skin treatments while you are taking isotretinoin and for at least 6 months after you stop taking it. Scarring may result.
Avoid exposure to sunlight or artificial UV rays (sunlamps or tanning beds). Isotretinoin can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight and sunburn may result.
Isotretinoin may impair your vision, especially at night. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to see clearly.
