Does Foods Beneficial to the Liver Prevent Accutane?

So I have been on Accutane coming up to 5 months now. 30mg a day. Been on steroids at the same time for the side effects but I haven't really seen much difference  apart from an improvement in my hyper pigmentation.

Getting a bit frustrated now so I was wondering if anything that is done that effects the liver also effects the effectiveness of Accutane. Such as eating and drinking a lot of stuff thats beneficial to the liver, stuff thats high in antioxidants and helps detox the liver. If something is detoxing the liver would this be flushing out the Accutane before it gets chance to work and get in to my system? Or am i just being impatient? I know 30mg a day isn't a lot.

Hyper pigmentation is tough, mine took years to go away completely. I remember my doc told me that alcohol interferes with accutane absorbtion. High fat foods like peanut butter and full fat dairy improves absorption. I wouldn't worry too much about your diet. If you're getting chapped lips then it's working.
