  2. See page 11 of attachment for Accutane dose information.

    There is no known interaction between caffeine (the stimulant in coffee) and Accutane; see page 18 of attachment.

    However, if Accutane makes you anxious, I would avoid drinking a lot of coffee, because caffeine can also trigger/worsen anxiety in some people.


    Good luck
