Alcohol On Lower Dosages

3 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I was on 60mg a day 5 years ago and that completely cured my acne. However it's recently returned and I've been prescribed a low dosage by my dermatoligist - 20mg a day.

He told me I can drink alcohol i.e. one glass of wine now and again but just wondering if you guys got the same story from your doctors?

Would I be able to dye my hair or wax as well?

Thanks for your help and any personal experiences welcome!

I got the same advice about drinking from my derm... However I have had no issues with drinking a little too much other than breaking out a little bit during the night. Before accutane I still broke out more than usual after drinking, so no difference for me.

I drank every once in awhile when I was on it. However, I wouldn't recommend getting hammered.
