Alcohol can change Soriatane into a different medication that lasts much longer in the body. If you consume any alcohol while taking Soriatane or within two months of stopping the medication, Soriatane may stay in the body for more than three years (instead of the normal time of about two months).
This is most important for women, who must avoid pregnancy while taking Soriatane and for a certain period of time afterwards, due to the risk of severe birth defects . Women of childbearing potential (all women, except those who have had a hysterectomy or those who have definitely been through menopause) must avoid all alcohol while taking Soriatane and for two months afterward. This includes any form of alcohol, including alcohol in food, beverages, or even medications.
