Acitretin (generic) belongs to a classification of medication known as retinoid, which is a form of vitamin A. This medication’s intended use is to provide treatment for symptoms associated with psoriasis in adults. It is not a cure for psoriasis and symptoms may re-emerge once treatment has stopped.

Acitretin is a prescription medication and should be taken strictly according to the instructions provided by your doctor. Do not attempt to take more or less of or for longer than what was recommended for you. This medication should be taken with food, and you should not stop treatment unless explicitly instructed by your doctor, even if you do not notice any significant improvements to your symptoms.


To make sure the use of Acitretin is right for you, discuss with your doctor regarding your medical history, especially if you have severe liver disease, kidney disease, high levels of triglycerides, are pregnant or breastfeeding, using methotrexate, or using a tetracycline antibiotic.

Acitretin is not safe to be used by women who are currently pregnant or may be pregnant within three years after stopping treatment. This medication may potentially cause severe birth defects, so proper use of contraception is highly recommended.

Acitretin is also known to excrete into breast milk and may potentially cause serious side effects in your child. Do not breast-feed during your treatment with acitretin.

Side Effects

The use of any prescription medication comes with the potential risks of experiencing minor to major side effects. Some common side effects of acitretin may include:

  • Chapped lips
  • Dry mouth
  • Itchy, dry, or scaly skin
  • Fragile nails/skin
  • Peeling skin on your hands and feet
  • Hair loss
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry or runny nose
  • Nosebleeds
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle pain

Some more uncommon and serious side effects of acitretin may occur and should be reported to your doctor immediately. These may include:

  • Serious mood changes
  • Heart attack or stroke symptoms
  • High blood sugar
  • Uncomfortable pressure inside your skull
  • Liver problems
  • Complications with your bones or muscles
  • Severe skin issues
  • Signs of a blood vessel problem


Will I be able to donate blood while taking acitretin?

Unfortunately, no. Acitretin will be in your blood, and if given to women who are pregnant, it could cause severe birth defects in their unborn child. It is recommended to wait at least three years after stopping your treatment with acitretin before donating blood.

How should I store my acitretin when I’m not using the medication?

It is recommended to store your acitretin in a dark, dry, and cool environment safely out of reach of young children and pets.

Meds arrived quickly, probably because they came from Canada. In good shape.

I have used Canada Med Stop for about 10 years. My orders have always been efficiently handled and approved by my doctors. Plus the cost of my prescription has been a 3rd of the cost in the US.
