This medicine may lead to birth defects, do consult your doctor if you are pregnant or planning pregnancy.

Uses of Sotret Capsule

Benefits of Sotret Capsule

In Acne

Sotret 30mg Capsule helps treat acne by reducing the production of sebum (a natural substance) that causes acne. This kills acne-causing bacteria and prevents spots or pimples from appearing. It usually takes a few weeks to have a noticeable effect so keep taking it even if it appears not to be working. Sometimes acne may get worse before it gets better, however, with proper use, your skin will get clearer. This medicine will help improve your mood and uplift your confidence as your skin becomes acne-free.
