they are all sort of cheap.... although all of them together can get expensive.

right now I take (it's in my signature):

Vit B complex (needed)


1g Evening Primrose Oil (helps with skin)

1g Flaxseed oil (makes skin shine, in a good way)

I also take a multi vitamin for kids that has a very low vit A, since your not supposed to take any extra on accutane.

OH! and I just added wild blueberry vitamins, which is actually just extra vit C, which can't hurt! ;)

Please do take these as well as any others you find that work for you, they really do help and can greatly ease side effects.

You can find them at any pharmacy, just bring in a list and they will help you. You can also tell them you are on accutane and ask what they suggest in the way of supplements and vitamins. If that doesn't work, you might need to look at an online pharmacy.
