Hi! im just over my second month on accutane, and i've discovered my skin dosn't heal very well. So I started taking vitamin e, zinc, and fish oil pills. I also sometimes take the kids flinstones ones to get a bit of everything. Is this a bad idea? Will it get in the way of the actuane working? thank for your help! :)

Vitamin E and fish oils should be ok as long as you don't overdose. I'm not too sure about the zinc though, my derm told me not to take them. And any supplement that contains Vitamin A is a no no.

My derm told me to skip on Zinc too. And you should check if your supplements contain Vitamin A. I know for a fact that Fish oil pills can contain them. Or was it Vitamin E pills, I'm not sure anymore...

I never took supplements, and I turned out fine btw.
