Taking fat and accutane...

Hiya all, just wondering for those who know a bit about nutrition etc and how its digested. I normally take accutane when I've eaten some food with fats such as cheese etc to help absorption as it says. Just wondering, does it matter what type of fat it is, i.e will the fats in nuts likely absorb it just as well?

Just going to try and cut dairy stuff out, and wanted to make sure I'm still taking the right stuff when munching the accutane and get confused with the different types of fats out there.

Yeah it definitely absorbs better, just trying to find if it makes a difference the types of fat. You don't need to take a lot of fat though, just enough for absorption.

R.e taking one tab or two, he sounds a bit slack really, he should be doing the decision making. It's hard to tell without knowing what the doses are going to be really.
