Tretizen 10 (isotretinoin) belongs to a class of drugs called retinoids, which are synthetic derivatives of vitamin A. These drugs are used to treat severe acne and other skin conditions. Topical isotretinoin has been shown to be effective as a treatment in combination with other medications for oral lichen planus. Because isotretinoin is derived from vitamin A, users of this drug should be careful to avoid vitamin A supplements as it can cause dangerous side effects.
