Accutane and Erythromicin

Ive been taking Erythromicin for about 8 weeks now and i've had mediocre results, but im starting accutane in a week, and I am wondering two things.

A. Ive heard that Accutane is less effective if you start it after being on antibiotics. Is this true?

B. Can i take Erythromicin while on Accutane?

I was on erythro before I started my accutane course...I didn't give it a chance to leave my system like many people do...mainly b/c erythro isn't a cycline antibiotic and my doc wasn't concerned about it...so I started accutane and just stopped the erythro...I'm doing great with the accutane and all....and yes you shouldn't take any medication while on accutane...w/o talking to your derm first...best of luck...
