Possible Interaction: Fish Oils and Isotretinoin


Fish Oils

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Increased triglyceride due to isotretinoin was reduced by 70% (P less than 0.05) and cholesterol by 45% (P less than 0.05) after addition of fish oil ; placebo oil had no effect.
Therefore fish oil inhibits hypertriglyceridaemia due to isotretinoin and etretinate and reduces increased cholesterol levels due to isotretinoin; this effect is likely to be due to altered lipoprotein composition.
