Any Advice For Whey Protein While On Accuane?

9 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I just started a 6-8 month course of accutane and I am on day 5 right now. I am an active person and I lift weights so I need protein on a daily basis. cheer.gif

I just purchased the PhD Body Scultp range, Diet whey and I was wondering if anyone knows if it is okay to drink whey protein while being on accutane . The ingredients are: whey protein concentrate (27%), milk protein concentrate (26% of which 56% is micellar casein), soya protein isolate, cocoa powder, waxy barley starch, golden brown flaxseed powder, thickeners (acacia, gum, guar gum, xanthan gum), flavouring, CLA powder (contains milk protein, lecithin, vitamin E), acetyl l-carnitine, green tea extract, sodium chloride, sweetener (sucralose).

Thank you

i have drank 60g of whey protein everyday on both my courses. Doesnt affect accutane at all. Its just a food supplement, I wouldnt worry about that at all.

I don't see how it has anything to do with accutane.


Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

Hello! I was told that some vitamins and some specific ingredients are not good to be taken with accutane. I didn't thought that whey protein has to do with accutane either but it's better to be 100% sure just in case :)

You are taking a dangerous dose of a form of Vitamin A. You should be worried about anything else with vitamin A. And you only get vitamin A from animal products. If you are worried about whey, you should be equally worried about any other animal product.

Definitely do not take Cod Liver Oil.

And I would not take such a drug without a bit more understanding of what you are taking. And I don't think asking here is a good way to be 100% sure.
