Fish oil + accutane

Recommended Posts

Is this a good idea? I've only come across mentions of fish oil capsules in different posts, and i'm wondering if this is a good supplement to use with accutane to help bring down pretty severe acne on the jawline/neck especially.

If this is a good idea, where can you get these capsules? I'd never heard of such a thing until now. Thanks a lot for your help everybody, and i'm sorry if you're frustrated because this has probably been asked many times.

Fishoil capsules (Omega 3 6 9) help to improve your concentration, prevent muscular pains and many other things. I think it's a good thing when you take these pills during your accutane course.

BUT...you have to make sure that these things do not contain vitamin A! I hope someone can assure this, i'm also on accutane and I would like to use these fishoil capsules.

Fish oils are fine, just avoid fish/cod liver oil. Check on the back just to make sure they have no vitamin A added though, you never know and i wouldn't want to risk anyones health, in general they are fine though and like the previous poster says beneficial...
