So, I have an accutane blood test tomorrow.

Can I drink tonight? Pretty please? :snooty:

Just a few beers... :think:

No.

unless you want your liver tests to be off and have to stop accutane

i wouldn't drink at least a week before the blood test just to be safe.

Damn.

How about weed? I know this has been discussed before but I want to make sure a very small amount of weed won't show up on the blood results.

The prescription for the blood test says: ALT, AST, ALK Phosp, WBC, Total Chol, Triglyceride.

:pray:

I had two Heinekens last night and nothing before that for weeks.

I have a blood test tomorrow morning.

Will I be safe or should I wait a couple more days?

It was only two Heinekens... but the last thing I want to do is screw up my test results and not get renewed my prescription!

It will most likely raise your liver enzymes and probably your blood lipids........A while ago I had bloodwork for a work physical and had a couple glasses of wine the night before with dinner.....my AST and ALT were in the 70's and the doctor called me and said there was something wrong with my liver......I had to get another bloodtest a few days later.........and it came back completely normal........the doctor asked me if I had anything to drink the night before the first test....I told him I had a little wine.........even though it was a fasting blood test.....my liver didn't recover quick enough.......

If you can give it another couple days I would.....if not, then blame the skiy high liver enzymes on the tane and hope it's not too high.....if it is, and he won't give you another Rx tell him you had a couple beers the night before.......it's better to know it was the beer not the tane.....

Thanks, I'll wait until Wed. than.

I don;'t want to put it off too long because my next derm appointment is in a few weeks and I NEED to have my vlood test results sent to him beforehand so that I can get my refills.

There shouldn't be any traces left in my by Wed. morning from 2 bottles of Heine on Sat. night, right?

I'd be more worried about irreegular liver test results than anything else...
