Smoking pot on accutane?

46 posts in this topic

Random question but I'm a month into my accutane treatment and am wondering if smoking pot is okay while on the meds? Mainly I'm only concerned because they give urine analysis's every month along w/the bloodwork and I don't know if they'd even care if it showed up or if they are even scanning for it in there but I dont' want to have gone a month so far on the meds only to get yanked off of them.

Are you out to destroy your liver? Its obvious that its a definete NO! Accutane itself is already very exhausting for your liver and you want to strain it further by adding in pot?! I can't believe that you are even thinking about it seeing that people in the accutane forums are already battling on how dangerous accutane itself is. Its not that the doctor don't bother about the test results, its because the results are fine enough for you to continue the treatment. BTW some people are unfortunate enough to need to drop accutane because of the bad results.

Accutane is a dangerous drug and one that is not to be taken lightly.

The 1st sentence says that there is no direct link though. Anyways though I'm sure it will be less harmful then drinking on accutane so I'll probably not think twice about it.

Yea, smoking weed will have no effect on acctuane. Weed is a very safe drug :). Take care

Nah bro, I wouldn't smoke pot on accutane. I tried to last night (been on accutane seven months now) and then drove about 2-3 hours later and just didn't feel right. I felt distracted. I almost hit someone from behind and then I got my first speeding ticket about 15 minutes after that.

Very, very bad decision on my part and one that will not happen again.

I myself notice no link between bud and acne. Isn't hard on your liver either.

You people trying to make weed out to be the worst thing in the world are truly pathetic. How much research on the drug have you done before writing about how terrible it is? Probably fucking none. Weed has no known ill effects on your liver. Actually lots of studies have been done showing that it is healthier than drinking. Not saying its the best thing for you, just trying to point out that not many people are against drinking yet these same people will be so against weed.

Get your heads out of your asses, just because the government makes something illegal does not mean its the worst thing in the world.

Anyways, smoke up on tane, I'm sure you'll be fine. My lips would just go crazy dry when I smoked weed on accutane.

Well smoke it at your own risk then. It won't show up in the blood tests because they meausre fats and liver enzymes but you said you had urine tests so it may show up there if they did drug analysis. The fact that it can show up in your urine means that it is already damaging your body just like alcohol. Besides pot is a depressant drug and plus accutane, you are doubling your risk of getting depression.

I don't understand why you guys enjoy damaging your bodies with stuff like alcohol and pot. Accutane itself is already hard on your body and you want to further add another load on it. Besides pot is also known to induce acne so if your course should fail oh well good luck then.
