    Hi,

    I am soon to be starting a course of isotretinoin and was wondering if it would be safe to continue drinking whilst on this course of drugs. I am otherwise a very healthy individual with no history of liver problems.

    Thanks

    I understand that obviously they would be the most resourceful people in ascertaining whether I could or could not, but I was more hoping that someone who has been on/is currently taking the same medication could shed some light from a personal perspective.

    No, this isn't something you can get a 'personal perspective' on.

    Could call 111, but they have a tendency to just tick boxes before deciding whether you should go to A&E/your GP/a walk in centre/a nurse.

    See your GP (or a doctor at a walk in centre).

    You could also ask a pharmacist about this, seeing as drugs tend to be their specialist subject.

    Your health is not a trifling or trivial matter and if I were you I wouldn't be so blase about it.
