Alcohol can change acitretin into a different medication that lasts much longer in the body. If one consumes any alcohol while taking acitretin or within two months of stopping the medication, acitretin may stay in the body for more than three years (instead of the normal time of about two months). Women of childbearing potential must avoid all alcohol while taking acitretin and for two months afterward. This includes any form of alcohol, including alcohol in food, beverages, or even medications.

However, please double check the info with the doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med, please stay away from alcohol, be well & safe!
