if you are sure you are going to use accutane I would stop taking your oral antibiotics. If you take them close to accutane it could still be in your bloodstream when accutane is and can cause the hypertension in the blood vessels in your brain and give you horrible headaches. I had to stop taking orals for 3-6 days (I can't really remember that well, it was somewhere around there) before I started accutane
