Accutane and Liver

Recommended Posts

My SGPT is 75 and the normal level is 55. My chlestoral level is 258, which is also higher than the normal level of 200. My derm could put me on Accutane for while, but I am not sure if I should take the chance?

I think that would be bad for your liver.Ask your derm though he/she is the one who will prescibe the medicine to you.

Try taking milk thistle or a general liver support supplement that contains it, completely abstain from alcohol, and follow a cholesterol lowering diet for a month and see if you can get those numbers closer to normal and then reconsider.
