What vitamins/supplements should I be taking while on Accutane?

Hi ~

Any advice would be great on what vitamins/supplements anyone has taken or is taking?

Fish oils, vitamin B? I know I should be...I just don't know where to start...

Hi there -

Congrats on getting Tane.

Talk to your Derm. first, but mine said any non-vitamin A vitamins and St. John's Wort. I especially read and take, calcium, vitamin C, vitamin E, biotin, Kerastase hair supplement mid-course, and probiotic. Tane messes with your bones (don't do strenuous exercise) and biotin will help your hair/nails. You may notice mid-course your hair becomes drier, flatter and thinner looking. I started Kerastase hair supplements it's helped my hair a lot. Other tips: Baby your skin (gentle cleansers and moisterisers) wash your hair less after you get on with Tane and condition it more and use masks, and watch Accutane miraculously clear your skin!

Good luck. I'm ending Tane and love the results.

Yvette
