my derm said some is ok as long as your blood tests always come back fine

just dont drink close to the time you need to get the blood work done

and dont drink a lot. like dont get drunk and hungover, a few drinks should be ok though.

and only once in a while, not every day or even every week.

It really depends on how you react to it.

Stop. My doctor said that drinking alcohol, will fuck up the enzymes that work on accutane and will make accutane less effective.

personally I don't drink at all, but I'd say just avoid it, I just finished my 5 month course, and all I can say is avoid anything that will draw the process out, if your dermatologist doesn't recommend that you drink alcohol then just avoid it. Trust me, making the process as quick and painless as possible is exactly what you want.
