What should I eat with Accutane?

Recommended Posts

So I hear eating something fatty with Accutane allows double absorption? What exactly should I be eating? Like a full on lunch/breakfast? Or a bagel?

Also, I know it's better to take accutane the same time everyday. But if you miss the point by 2-3 hours one day, would that really matter?

Eating it with fat helps it absorb better, yes (not 'double absorb' but absorb properly). Anything really, doesn't need to be a full meal. People often say even taking it with milk will work.

And no, it's not like birth control where you HAVE to take it at a certain time, you can miss days, change from morning to evening.... time isn't an important factor. Personally I like to take it in the morning, if I take it at night I get nosebleeds (I'm very susceptible to them from before tane)!
