    Took Popular Acne miracle drug and now liver is inflamed!! =(((

    My monthly Accutane blood test came in and it said my liver is inflamed! My derm gave me Milk Thistle and Fish oil to reverse the inflammation. Anyone has experience with those suplements?? Gimme feed back!

    Accutane is a concentrated vitamin A, known to be a bad actor on the liver.

    Do not take Accutane if you have hepC or any liver disease.

    It also has been associated with depression and suicide in teens. This is a drug the FDA has issued warnings about and there have been Congressional hearings on. One can only imagine how it might interact with the interferon treatments.

    I do not know if those drugs will help with the inflammation. Milk thistle has been shown to be helpful with liver toxicity, but not if you continue to take the toxin.

    I hope your doctor has taken you off the Accutane.
