Accutane and alcohol
Posted on: 10/31/2006
I drink more then 1-2 beers Fridays and Saturdays. I take accutane at night. So if I took it Thursday night and drank more then 4-10 beers on Friday without taking it Friday night, would I be fine?
No, you can't be sure. And NO you wouldn't be fine drinking 4-10 beers anyway. You should be aware that you are underage to drink alcohol, and though I know this occurs, you can still cause yourself serious harm from drinking so much at once. Alcohol poisoning is very real, and is deadly -- and it's not cool or fun.
AND you really shouldn't risk taking a high risk medication like Accutane with any alcohol at all.
