taking over-the-counter meds (while on accutane)

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I was on accutane for a month (brand name) and then went a week without medicine and was switched to Sotret. My question -- I am feeling kinda sick, I caught something from my brother, runny nose, a cough and a head-ache. Is it safe to be taking tylenol and stuff for the cough while on accutane?

I would personally avoid Tylenol since the dose of it that effects the liver is not much higher than the therapeutic dose, and Accutane is a stress to the liver in and of itself. I'd go with the Advil (ibuprofin) cold stuff instead.
