Sun Pharma launched an Absorica Tracker App to help patients get the most out of their treatment. The easy-to-use interface is designed to help users to monitor their progress with Absorica (isotretinoin) treatment with features like medication and appointment reminders, monthly tips and checklists, and a progress tracker that uses a camera function and allows patients to take a photo of themselves at each step of their treatment journey.

Absorica is indicated for patients 12 years of age and older to treat severe recalcitrant nodular acne that cannot be cleared up by any other acne treatments, including antibiotics. Absorica can cause serious side effects, including birth defects, and serious mental health problems. The Absorica Tracker App is designed to allow patients to monitor their treatment process, and understand the necessary elements for success, all in one convenient place.

The new Absorica Tracker App capabilities include:

  • My Progress Tracker: Allows users to visually see how their skin is developing over time
  • My Plan: Includes monthly tips and checklists to keep patients on track for success
  • Medication Reminders: Used to remind patients to never miss a dose
  • Appointment Reminders: Helps ensure that patients see their healthcare professional on time 
  • Medication Guide: Includes important information about ABSORICA

This product does not replace advice from healthcare professionals or any iPLEDGE requirements. Patients must take Absorica exactly as prescribed, and must follow all the requirements of the iPLEDGE Program.

"In today's mobile-centric world people are using their phones to track everything, from their steps to their food intake. The development of an App is useful to those who are willing to fully commit themselves to the ABSORICA treatment process," said Dr. Hillary Baldwin, MD, a board-certified dermatologist. "The App was designed to support patients from start to finish and help them possibly achieve the more clear skin they desperately seek."

The ABSORICA Tracker App is available for free download in the App Store or Google Play Store.
