roaccutane and pregnancy

Hi

i took roaccutane (in fact i took the generic think it was called oratane) for 1 month from Mid november-mid december 2009. I want to start trying for a baby. Is this safe? will the baby not be affected by this drug?

Hi Mowsy

Although the literature suggests that a one month break would be enough, most doctors suggest a 3 month period before falling pregnant - "Just to be safe."

All the best!

I stopped taking Oratane in mid-December 2009 - is 6 months a safe waiting period to try to fall pregnant?
