Not a good idea: Accutane should be clear of the body in four to six weeks. Binge drinking is never a good idea for a long list of reasons!

Ask your doctor: Isotretinoin is a highly effective treatment with lasting benefits. Most patients do not require any treatment for their acne after completing a standard course of isotrenoin therapy. A small percentage of patients will have a recurrence of their acne but even then it tends to occur a year or more after stopping isotretinoin. If that happens, consult your dermatologist.

Within 3 months: Acne can flare the first few months on isotretinoin. Most patients start to improve by 12 weeks. There are always a few patients who require more time to improve.
