Re: Alcohol after Accutane....

haha no your not meant to, because accutane weakens your liver or somthing and so does alcohol, I think ur allowed a little whilst on it, but now im finished I wanna get very tipsy to celebrate the miracle cure of accutane, but I dont want to kill myself if Im not meant to drink yet, anybody know?

Re: Alcohol after Accutane....

this guy here on the boards was telling stories of how he got so wasted that he forgot where he put his pills sometimes and he used to drink a lot while on the accutane.... but this is health boards, im sure someone will chip in with how u shouldnt drink to get drunk anyway. couple shots and a beer or two, no biggie right?

Re: Alcohol after Accutane....

I had a few drinks while on accutane, but I never drank excessively anyway. Accutane is very strong on the liver so if you do drink, you'd have to be extremely careful. I don't advocate it, but some people would do it regardless.

I don't know for sure but if it were me I would give my liver about 3 months to recover from using accutane before I drank.
