Hey all,

So I just got a prescription for the tane and am getting ready to start but am wondering about supplements to make things easier on my body.

My derm said he didn't expect me to have an IB but just in case I have heard some folks recommend b5 supplementation at the start. How much and how often? What do you guys think?

Accutane takes a toll on your liver so I am going to be taking Milk Thistle. Anybody else do this?

Right now I take a multi vitamin but it obviously has vit A in it. What multi have you guys tried that doesn't have any vit A in it? Is there such a thing?

I lift weights so I have heard different people recommend fish oil. Would omega 3 supplements work just as well or do you need the fish oil?

With all this being said, what else would you guys recommend? Keep in mind about the weightlifting especially...

Thanks guys!

You don't want to overload on supplements either. Each supplement is also metabolized by the liver and kidneys and too much strain and stress may give you horrid lab values and actual liver damage. It's far better to check with a pharmacist for safe supplement options rather than this board. Anecdotal evidence doesn't cut it when your liver is at stake.
