Hey Rockabilly
My derm said that you shouldn't drink more than 4 beers a night, and only do that twice a week. I just finished my accutane treatment, and I didn't give up my alcoholic tendencies for my treatment ;) . However, my liver obviously turned out to be pretty tough to be able to take the 'tane and the liqs. From what I understand the combination is quite hard on your liver, so I certainly am not going to recommend drinking during your session, but I'm not about to lead by example.

One pointer that I heard is that Milk Thistle is good at helping your liver heal. If I were you I'd get on some Milk Thistle (Go to a pharmacy) if you plan on drinking, but remember you're rolling the dice. Ideally you should wait to drink until after your treatment, but that's not always a reasonable thing to expect. If you're going to be irresponsible, just make sure that you get your blood checked regularly to make sure your liver is functioning properly. Another thing, whenever I was going on a real bender, I'd skip my accutane dosage for that day, as well as the day after. Also, since you're starting in the summer, watch out for the sun!

Good Luck
