    Accutane + Summer = Sigh

    Well considering I have "great" timing, this summer is NOT going to be as great..
    I had two things planned, total relaxation and party party party! Oh yes.
    But I'm on Accutane, so that means NO ALCOHOL.

    Or does it?

    Will someone care to englighten me?

    I've read several posts on this, lots of people say its okay.

    However keep in mind i'm not a doctor, so if you go get plastered and end up in the hospital, i'm not liable. Its not a wise move. There hasn't been any actual research to back up any serious side effects but doctors say it can mess up the heart and blood vessles. Going against warnings does have its risks.

    Good luck.

    I took roactuane but don't remember obstaining from alcohol. Roaccutane puts a strain on your kidney, so alcohol exacerbates it. But I'm sure if you drink now and then and drink LOTS of water to counteract it, I'm sure you'll be ok. But I'm NOT a doctor, so don't listen to me!! haha

    I have a few drinks while on Accutane but I make sure to limit it. I don't want to risk any problems.

    If you dont drink everyday and like twice a week and dont overdo it, youll be fine.
