Important information about some
of the ingredients of Reticutan 20
mg
Reticutan 20 mg contains soya
oil. If you are allergic to peanut or
soya, do not use this medicinal
product.
Drowsiness, dizziness and visual
disturbances have been reported
very rarely. If you experience any of
these effects, you should not drive,
operate machinery or take part in
any other activities where these
symptoms could put either yourself
or others at risk.
Driving and using machines
Your night vision may get worse
during your treatment. This can
happen suddenly. In rare cases this
has continued after the treatment
has stopped. You should therefore
be cautious when driving or
operating machines.
Lactation
You should not take Reticutan 20
mg if you are breast-feeding,
because isotretinoin is likely to pass
into the milk and may harm the baby.
If pregnancy occurs or might be
likely in a woman treated with
isotretinoin, treatment must be
stopped immediately and the
patient should contact her doctor
without delay.
