lol I was on actually eating garbage pretty much like you while on accutane and it didn't affect my progress so its fine. And for the drinking, yes its fine to drink a small glass but not too much. Accutane is heavy on the liver but your liver can still handle a little alcohol though its not encourage. Cut down on your drinks though if you really want to.Once in a while is no problem.

I've been on for a month and a bit, and I've seen dramatic improvements smile.gif i'm on a dose of 40mg/day. Just drink a lot of water everyday to keep yourself hydrated.
You can take your dose on the same day as you drink, but like maddy said, its not advised to drink alcohol during Accutane because it puts stress on the liver and may cause long term damage - just don't drink loads! smile.gif

Fast food is a big no. On my first course I was at a pretty high dosage and I didn't get any side effects except dry skin. So I wasn't sensitive to the side effects. But I remember the last month I ate some Burger King and my cholesterol went off the charts, lol. So no fatty fried foods is really important. On the alcohol, my first course I didn't drink (Accutane or not) so I can't really comment on that but right now I try to not have liquor but maybe a beer or something.

I was on 20mg/day. Yes its fine to drink on the same day you are taking accutane. Just don't take them at the same time. For example, if you think you might drink some at night, then take accutane in the morning so that there is some time in between such that both don't get processed at the same time.
