Is It Safe To Take Creatine While On Accutane
Is it safe to take creatine and multivitamin supplements while on accutane? I am an 18 year old male wanting to gain lean muscle mass.
Safe but no benefit: The data on creatine remains controversial but at least it's safe. Same w/regards to multivitamins. Luckily, no interactions w/Accutane (isotretinoin) either. Best way to gain muscle, besides exercising regularly, is to eat healthy & get enough rest. Make sure you get enough protein 1-1.5g/lb body weight daily. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I don't advise it.: Accutane already has the potential to cause liver and kidney damage and should not be taken lightly or without close monitoring. High protein and creatine powders add an extra layer of stress to your system & could cause dehydratiion. In the long run, it takes time and hard work to build muscle, and you only need modest protein in your diet to supply that. ...Read more

Can I take creatine, adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and Accutane together? I drink a lot of water and workout everyday. I play football and baseball.
Not advisable: While there are no contraindications to these drugs combined, it is not a great idea to stress your kidneys so much. Accutane can cause kidney problems as can creatine, so combining the two will likely increase the risk, even if you drink a lot of fluids. I'd talk to your doctor, but I would also tell you to avoid the creatine if you were my patient. ...Read more
Can I take creatine, adderall, (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) and Accutane at the same time? I drink a lot of water already for sports. I play football and baseball/workout.
Not Recommended: As a pediatrician I need to caution you about the use of creatine - we still don't know what the potential long-term effects are. It is really discouraged in growing teens. Taking the combination you mentioned puts a lot of stress on your kidneys, even if you are drinking "plenty" of water. ...Read more
