ACITRETIN Lifestyle Interactions

Acitretin 25mg, Oral capsule

Alcohol

· Severity: Severe

· Notes for Consumers: Women should not drink alcohol-containing drinks while taking Acitretin or for 2 months after stopping treatment. Consuming alcohol while taking Acitretin increases the risk for birth defects. Discuss which birth control method is best for you and/or your partner while you are taking Acitretin with your health care provider.

· Notes for Professionals: Patients must avoid all alcohol-containing beverages and medicines, including over-the-counter products, during and for 2 months after stopping therapy with acitretin. Concurrent ingestion of alcohol and acitretin results in the conversion of acitretin to etretinate. Because etretinate has a significantly longer elimination half-life than acitretin, coadministration of alcohol and acitretin would increase the duration of teratogenic potential for female patients. It is not known whether substances other than alcohol are associated with transesterification.
