accutane, fish oil and zinc

Recommended Posts

ok, recently i have been reading all these posts about how on some people, fish oil capsules are working for their acne and zinc...in my case, i just started taking accutane and have been on it for two weeks now. my dose is 40mg a day (1capsule/day)...so my question is...should i take fish oil capsules as well?????? because ive been reading these other posts for awhile and they seem to help many people. I just think that would be too many pills for me to be taking.

No, you shouldn't because it's very high in vitamin A which you're supposed to limit when you're on Accutane.

regular fish oil isn't high in vitamin A...cod liver oil is though
