Is ok to smoke marijuana while on Accutane?

Maybe like once a week or twice a week or EVEN ONCE A MONTH!?

Will smoking marijuana during my course of Accutane make Accutane not work right?

Basically is it ok? If so, When, How Often?

(once a week or twice a week etc....)


PLEASE ANYBODY THAT KNOWS ANYTHING, HELP ME OUT AND SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE, THANKS!

This is the way I see it (don't take my word for it):

you can't drink alcohol because your liver cannot remove toxins as quick (lower rate) as it usually does (without the use of accutane).

the liver's role is to take toxins and remove it (break it down?) from the body

accutane slows down the rate at which the liver can function (break down toxins)

wouldn't marijuana be considered a toxin to the body as well?

but don't take my word for it; it just makes sense to me
I used to smoke pot and drink alcohol while on accutane.

I smoked at least 3 times daily, sometimes 6 or 7 times. Marijuana is a depressent, accutane is said to cause depression. I used accutane while having slight depression, I started smoking pot way before that. While using the two things at the same time, I noticed the spells of depression got worse. I quit smoking pot about 5 months into my accutane treatment (I was on for 7 months). There was a very significant mood change, depression had almost totally left me.

Drinking while on accutane isn't good for you, but it also won't kill you. Moderation is key. I drank almost every weekend. The one thing I did notice was that my alcohol tolerence seemed to have gone down, where 5 or 6 beers would get me nice, 2 beers usually did me in. Your liver gets over-taxed by working not only the accutane into your system, but your alcohol intake as well. Just watch out on your intake.

But then again, you're only 16, you shouldn't be drinking! Or smoking, I shouldn't either!
Actually, Marijuana is a depressant AND a stimulant. *health is my fav subject ;-)
