Brief Answer:
No risk if a men on acitretin wants to father

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to healthcaremagic

I am Dr. Kakkar. I have gone through your query and I have understood it.

Available data do not appear to indicate any reproductive safety risk due to paternal treatment with acitretin. Therefore unlike females, men taking acitretin can father children with no additional risks.
