So i pick this Anti-Acne pills off my local pharmacy, the ingredients are

Vitamin A 5000iu (Beta Carotene)

Vitamin C 200mg

Yeast 15mg

Calcium Sulfate 15mg

Niacin 25mg

Zinc 15mg


Burdock 15mg

Sarsaparilla 15mg

Echinacea 15mg

Sassafras 15mg

I been taking 2 pills a day so i'm actually taking 10000iu of Vitamin A dailiy. Just wondering is it safe for a person to be taking this amount of Vit A?

These pills are sort of helping my mild acne but if it's doing harm to my health i'll still have to stop taking them... :sick:

Anybody can enlighten me??

It's fine since it's beta carotene, that isn't absorbed as vit a in your body unless you need it.
