Accutane: Accutane is metabolized through the liver and can cause irritation of the liver and elevation of liver functions on bloodwork. Alcohol can do the same and should be avoided when taking accutane. Drinking while taking it may inflame your liver and cause damage or at least force your doctor to stop the Accutane treatment.
