A lot of people connect milk to breakouts. Dunno about the egg whites. Remember that you need to take your dose with fat - it increases absorption significantly. If you are worried about the fat, pick the types that are good for you like avocado, olive oil, nuts, and oily fish like salmon.

I've abandoned the diet idea until I'm done accutane.

I simply need the fat for the accutane to do it's job properly. Plus I hate skim milk... heh

If you can, that would be best. I make sure to have a big cup of tea with 2% or 3.25% milk in it when I take my morning pills (20mg) and with my dinner at night I try and have something with even more fat in it (40mg).

my doctor told me to take the pills with milk, but I don't because i absolutely hate milk. it should be fine to drink milk.
