Acnetane & Pregnancy

Dear Cyberdoc

I ve been put on a 3 month course of Acnetane to clear up my skin.

I will be finishing my last month of supply of Acnetane during April. My husband and I want to try for our second baby late this year/beginning next year. Though I do know that Acnetane/roaccutane carries big consequences and deficiencies (sp).

Can you please advise if this would be a suitable time to plan our second pregnancy?

Dear JS
Rather wait about 6 months after you ended Acnetaine as there is a risk of Acnetane causing foetal abnormalities.

Do these tablets correct your skin forever, how long do you have to take them to ensure permanent results and is is true that you must not use make-up when on them?
