Many women on Accutane are still getting pregnant
Many women on Accutane are still getting pregnant.
Since the new safety programs started, there's only been a 6% drop in pregnancies in women who are on Accutane. This is disappointing since the total number of Accutane (isotretinoin) prescriptions dropped 23%.
Remind women that oral contraceptives aren't fully effective for the first week or more. They need to use two effective methods for a month before, during, and a month after using isotretinoin.
