6 Beers on Accutuane 40 Mg?

Should I be worried if I drank 6 beers last night while on Accutane 40 mg? I stopped taking my meds 2 days before drinking. According to my last test, a few weeks ago, my liver was alright. Thanks alot!

Accutane and drinking

While I can't say I recommend drinking 6 beers, you should be fine. Accutane is not good for people who are chronic drinkers or alcoholics, as their livers are already severely damaged. For a person who has a few drinks every now and then while taking Accutane, you will be fine.
