Urgent: Which Liver Support For Accutane?

8 posts in this topic

I'm picking up my Rx for accutane in 2 days and am taking every precaution to avoid long term side effects. Of course, I've looked into liver support while on accutane and have 2 possible products:

- Tyler's Detoxification Factors

- Liv.52 by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare

http://www.himalayahealthcare.com/products/pharmaceuticals/liv52.htm

I'm learning towards the Tyler's because I've heard much better reviews, and it's more readily available here. One thing to mention, is I notice it has Vitamin A (IN BETA-CAROTENE FORM) - is this ok to take?

I will be on 20mg/daily (at 75kg) btw.

Just noticed the tyler's had palmitate not just beta-carotene, so it's definitely out of the question while on. What supplements are people using for liver support? NAC and a milk thistle?

You don't need liver support on Accutane. As long as you attend your regular blood tests and they come back normal, your liver will be fine.

Not drinking on Accutane will also help.

Blueberry is a great fruit and a good source of antioxidant that can detox your liver! It also helps with your inflammation.

I never took anything and was fine. There are medications that are much harder on the liver than Accutane. As long as you're monitored, you'll be fine.
