I started taking this a few days ago, well it's actually Beta Carotene "Provitamin A". Is it safe to take? It's 25,000 IU in one pill.

Yeah, that's not much. If you want to try Vit A for acne, get a true Vit A supp (retinyl palmitate from fish liver, preferably without soy)- and take 20-30,000 iu/day. Or just get it from cod liver oil...

That is a high Vitamin A dose if you are planning to take it for a long time.

Don't take supplental Vitamin A, unless it's the naturally-occurring kind from cod liver oil.

It's easy to get beta carotene from vegetables, and I suggest you do so.
