In brief: U can take

Ranitidine(histamine 2 blocker) or any antacid (mylanta, maalox) with Isotretinoin without any drug interaction.
Don't take the antacid and Isotretinoin at the same time or space them apart by at least 4 hours so that the absorption of the latter won't be affected. Take care! http://www.Greenmedinfo.Com/blog/11-herbs-used-traditional-acne-remedies.
