what to eat before accutane

Recommended Posts

my doctor told me to take my accutane after a big meal

what ive heard here is to have your accutane pill after a fatty meal?

my question is if a single big mac from mcdonalds is enough to eat before i take my pill. is 1 big mac at mcdonalds enough to eat?

thx

From what I've heard, accutane raises triglyceride levels so it's probably a good idea to avoid eating large amounts of foods high in saturated fats while you're taking it. Just don't eat it with a big mac everyday 'cause if your levels raise too high, they could end up pausing your course of accutane until it goes back down. Maybe try to stick with the good fats from now on.

No, I didn't mean to worry you. I doubt it'll be a problem if you're not eating big macs all the time and you're young and in good shape. If you're still worried though, you can always start taking a fish oil supplement (fish oil is known for lowering triglyceride levels) and maybe try to stick with the good fats, such as: olive oil, avacado, nuts, etc. You can also ask the crowd over on the Accutane board (located in Prescriptions) what they like to eat with their pills. I'm sure you'll be fine, so long as you're healthy though--:)
