Question: Accutane & Dextromethorphan
|Chase - Sun Apr 24, 2005 5:34 pm||
Im on Accutane treatment, the acne medication. my doctor has warned me it is very harsh on the liver, and should not be consumed with alcohol. I am getting monthly bloodtests to check my liver, and alcohol shows up on it.
I abuse Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide [DXM] recreationaly, and am wondering if it can be hazardous to the liver, and will distrupt the accutane treatment. Im not sure if Dextromethorphan even effects the liver.

To my knowledge there are no documented adverse effects on the liver from Dextromethorphan Hydrobromide nor contraindications in use with Accutane.
