I'm 110lbs and was just given 40mg Accutane from my GP (no derm in my area) I took it 8 years ago, it worked but I feel that it has affected my liver as if I drink(which is occasionally) I get an awful hungover the next day from just one or two drinks (I always eat before drinking). This makes me scared to take this medication again as I worry I may cause more damage. I am waiting on my blood work before I go ahead with my prescription. Should I take liver support supplements and if so what?
Should I Take Liver Support Supplements on Accutane?

Liver support supplements and Accutane
Liver functions can go high on Accutane but they rebound quickly and go back to whatever the levels were before, within about 15-30 days of stopping Accutane. You simply have a low tolerance for alcohol, which has nothing to do with Accutane. I can't say I recommend liver support supplements, and frankly, it's just more for the body to process.
