Derm treatments?


I'm considering consulting a derm. My skin is just getting worse, even that i'm using differin.

Well, ive heard that the derm isn't always treating with accutane, but if its not accutane, which product is it then?

And another one:

Is it possible to go drink in the weekend, if im on accutane?

Thank you, cheers!

Probably oral and topical antibiotics & topical retinoids, which work well for some people. My roommate is only on bactrim (an AB) and it has cleared up his acne, also two of my friends are on topicals and ABs and they have completely cleared up. Accutane is usually used after these treatments fail.

As for drinking, some people do it. but I decided I'm not going to drink while taking accutane because it is already hard on the liver.

Okay I see. But what about the other treatments you talked about. Are they hard on the liver too, and does it damage more than usually to drink in the period under treatment?
