Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Acitretin



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

With monkey and dog cells, traces of etretinate were found without ethanol addition, but the esterification of acitretin was highly enhanced by ethanol.
With rat and human hepatocytes, etretinate was detectable only when ethanol was co-administered with acitretin.

Co-administration of acitretin and ethanol to rats resulted in a maximum plasma concentration of etretinate at approximately 1 h after dosing.
The results of our study in the rat could indicate that the presence of etretinate in plasma of some patients being treated with acitretin may result from the intake of alcohol.
