hi everyone (I'm new to this forum so apologies if I make any mistakes)

I've been on 20mg of roaccutane for 3 months and was bumped up to 40 last week, and haven't had any alcohol at all since I started. however, my 18th birthday is in a week so I'll finally be able to go out and have my first legal drinks. I know it's stated that you shouldn't drink due to the effect the drug is already having on your liver, but would one night really do as much damage as say, drinking a little bit every weekend as some do? I just really don't want to spend my 18th sober when I can FINALLY get drinks with ID! any advice would be much appreciated, and I would do my best not to drink for the rest of my course! my last bloods before moving up to 40 were totally normal.

thank you!

I wouldn't recommend it, I got blackout drunk and it didn't show on my blood results, you will probably get a lot easier drunk than you normally would since the pill (accutane) goes through your liver like alcohol does, so if you just keep it to a minimum you should be fine.
