I'm on 80mg a day of accutane. I have been drinking a lot of milk lately, about half a gallon a day. I know that you should avoid a lot of vitamin A while your on accutane. Does milk have a lot of vitamin a, and if so is a half gal a day going to harm me?

I'm on the same dosage, and my doctor didn't say anything about milk. Milk isn't a significant source of vitamin A. I asked about carrots and sweet potatoes and he said unless I'm eating an excessive amount of vitamin a heavy foods like that, I should be fine. Just don't take any supplements with vitamin a.

However, I don't think that much milk is very good for your acne anyways. But diet and acne is very objective so you have to experiment with that!

Milk coats the stomach. I have heard it may inhibit the absorption of the accutane , meaning you may not be getting the full dose. I wouldn't recommend drinking milk close to the time you take your accutane pill. Take calcium with vitamin d supplements instead and see if it helps.

milk is so bad for acne, you shouldn't even have it, its full of hormones that trigger off acne

My dermatologist told me to drink plenty of milk while being on accutane. Mainly because accutane weakens the bones.

My derm also told me to drink lots of milk and actually to take the drug with a glass of milk after a heavy lunch. That helps the organism to absorb the medicine better.
