Re: Pregnancy after Accutane
I believe your doctor is right, you just need it out of your system before you try to concieve, just 30 days. I was interested and looked up information on the internet after reading this, even reading the package insert. But since the birth defects can be so bad, I too would be like you and wait longer than 30 days, just to be on the safe side. But I believe you said its been 2-3 months, you should be okay by now. There are not many medications that will stay in your system after about 8 weeks from the time you stop taking them. I believe some antidepressants will stay there that long. Oh and lets not forget the Depo shot, that takes 3 months, and that is a long time.
Well maybe you could check for some kind of statistics on the health of babies born to women who discontinued use of accutane 3 months before conception. Try medline on the internet.
