Accutane and Vitamin A

I know your supposed to avoid vitamin A while on accutane, but I take a daily multivitamin with vitamin A, and lets face it foods you eat over the day have vitamin A, so are you really expected to eliminate vitamin A??

Re: Accutane and Vitamin A

Hey,
Im also taking Accutane, and i think you should avoid Vitamin A altogether. Your basically overdozing yourself with vitamin A when taking Accutane. And adding more to your system is not a good idea. My doctor have treated over 1000 Accutane patients, and he strongly said to not take any vitamin A vitamins, even if its from a multi-vitamin supplements like you said. Just check other peoples journals, or better yet go to an Accutane message board and you'see what im talking about.
Good luck with the treatment

Re: Accutane and Vitamin A

I know its impossible to completly negate yourself from Vitamin A. If i were you i would just keep away from Multi-vitamin Supplement that contains Vitamin A.
hope that helps.
