Oral retinoids and the Pregnancy Prevention Programme

Oral retinoids mustn’t be used during pregnancy. They have a high risk of causing severe birth defects and miscarriage. 

This pharmacy guide covers safe prescribing, dispensing and counselling advice to protect all patients who use oral retinoids, including female patients who are at risk of pregnancy under the Pregnancy Prevention Programme (PPP).
