How soon after an accutane course can you start to drink/smoke?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be coming off accutane soon, and I was wondering how soon I can start to consume alcohol again. I have been told by my derm that the medication stays in your system for a month after the last pill. Knowing the damage accutane can cause to your liver, I was wondering what a sensible amount of time to leave in between drinking and my last dose of accutane would be? 

Also, I am not a smoker. I do like a casual cigarette when out with friends and after reading the horror stories of how accutane increases your future risk of lung cancer by something like 70% (how accurate that is I do not know) I have not smoked since before the start of my course. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
