Cod liver oil is high in vitamin A, but most "fish oils" or "omega 3 oils" aren't cod liver oil. There is a difference. Check the labels first, when in doubt check with your dermatologist. From what I remember when I took Accutane, Vitamin A is to be avoided but oils in general not necessarily so.

Please check with your doctor as I remember my own dermatologist advising me to not supplement with any Vitamin A while on Accutane.

When I was on Accutane I took a multivitamin that had no Vitamin A, and took fish oil with no Vitamin A. For me it definitely was beneficial, in the early stages of me taking Accutane my knees were slightly hurting. As soon as I took the multivitamin and the fish oil, I never experienced that problem again. But as Brandy mentioned above, talk it over with dermatologist first just to be safe.
