Griseofulvin induces aneuploidy and therefore is a potential teratogen. Therefore it has been advised that both men and women should use contraception whilst taking griseofulvin.
- men - should avoid fathering children during treatment and up to six months
after griseofulvin has been stopped
- women - should not become pregnant whilst taking griseofulvin or within
one month of stopping treatment
