Alcohol while on accutane

Recommended Posts

Will drinking alcohol while on accutane stop the pills from working, or will it just put more strain on your liver, but the medication continue to work?

well the pharmacist who prescribed it to me, said that alcohol makes the drug less effective, he didnt give any particular reason as to how. but not drinking because it is taxing on your liver makes sense.

I took it all the while on vacation, where I partied my ass off...nothing happend and it didn't lose its efficacy. I wouldn't advise anyone to drink to excess like that while on it though.

drinking wont take anything away from its effectiveness i dont know why your pharmacist told you that. that was just a theory that was wrong. Its more strain on your liver, thats an important enough reason to stop.
