Accutane and minocin, Accutane and drinking

Recommended Posts

Hi

Since my acne isn't clearing up (20mg of accutane since 50 days) I want to get minocin again, at least for one month until accutane finally shows an effect. My derm is on holiday so we went to my "regular" doctor and he said it's no problem to use both medications at the same time. Do you have any experience with this?

And what about drinking while on accutane and minocin? I was already once on a low dose accutane treatment for a year and I NEVER paid attention not to drink any alcohol. I had lots of evenings where I was complete drunk and never had any problems. But should I avoid that?

I was told by my dermatologist that it's a bad combination. Accutane will do the trick, be patient it takes time. Also drinking while on both accutane and minocin could have a very serious effect.
