Fast while on accutane

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am muslim and it is our holly month of ramadan where we fast from sunrise to sunset. I know the dangers of being dehydrated on this drug and all its major side effects do you think its safe to fast.

I'd take Accutane before sunrise when you're allowed to eat, and after sunset again, and also make sure you drink plenty of water with the dose if you're not allowed to drink during the day. For even better guidance, I'd ask your pharmacist or doctor for further information to make sure you stay safe while you're taking Accutane and following your religious guidelines.

Thanks for the advice, I went to go and see my dermatologist and he advices me that fasting would be safe so I tried fasting for one day and felt extremely weak and dehydrated so I decided to make a personal choice and decided it wasn't a good idea.

Hey mina im also muslim. I finished my tane course short of ramadan but I was told it would be okay to take. Just take it in Sehri after food and then in the evening in iftaar. You'll be fine! Also drink plenty of water! Like loads! If you still feel ill then you may have to stop fasting.
