A:   Hello thanks for your query on ATD.

Tretiva cause dry skin , dry lips , feeling of heat etc Apart from it may increase blood fats. It also increases the liver enzymes so the alcohol should be avoided.You can safely eat chicken , fish etc. This has very minimal or no effect over male reproductive system.However in females it may cause abnormalities in baby if she become pregnant
