Are there any multivitamins I can take???

Recommended Posts

My body has been doing some unusual things lately, which I think may be from vitamin deficiency (even though I eat very healthy). I know on accutane you are not supposed to take vitamin A, but is this all right if the vitamin a is in beta-carotene form?

As far as I'm aware, beta carotene is only coverted to vitamin A when your body needs it. However, as long as you eat a healthy and balanced diet you shouldn't need any extra vitamin supplements. I've read some people on here say their derm specifically advises against taking any vitamins whilst on accutane so I don't, just to be safe.
