Can Accutane be stopped for a few days to allow alcohol consumption?

If I Stopped Taking Accutane for 2 or 3 Days Would I Be Able to Drink? Than Go Back on It?

No Alcohol during Accutane

I counsel my patients on Accutane not to consume any alcohol while taking Accutane due to the harmful effects on the liver.   It is best to wait until a month after the Accutane course is complete before any alcohol consumption.
