Began taking Isotretinoin yesterday

Recommended Posts

My acne went from moderate to severe in november last year, so I decided to take the strongest measures since it just doesn't give up, I've tried antibiotics and all sorts of topical products without satisfying result.

I received Decutan from the derm(similar to Accutane) i'm taking 40mg a day. I was wondering if I should avoid foods that are high in Vitamin A(such as carrots)?

Yes, I've read here it's best to go easy on your liver and not take any supplements with vitamin A in it-- I think carrots once in a while is o.k., but don't over do it. It's obviously best to eat balanced diet, lots of good fats and lots of green leafy veggies.

I was advised by my dermatologist not to take any vitamin supplements. He said there is such a thing as overdosing on Vitamin A. Many vitamins won't hurt you, but he said that Vitamin A can be deadly if you get too much. My derm said I would get enough Vitamin A if I just ate plenty of fruits and veggies and stuck to a healthy diet.
