Publication: Dermatol Clin. 2005 Oct;23(4):665-74.

Despite reports suggesting the link between isotretinoin (brand name Accutane) and depression and suicide, the authors used more rigorous studies to show that there are no such link. Nevertheless, the authors concluded that physicians should be aware of the symptoms of depression and to consider discontinuing isotretinoin treatment of depressed adolescents and young adults.
