Hi, as my antibiotics don't seem to be doing much anymore, I have started taking vitamins for my acne. I am particularly curious about how much Vitamin A to take.

Right now I am taking...

Vitamin A / 15000 IU per day

Zinc / 40 mg per day

Iron / 25 mg per day

As well as some Niacin, Vitamin B6, Copper, Iodine and Calcium.

I have been doing a lot of looking around to see how much vitamin A one should take to combat acne. Some sites say not to take more that 10,000 IU per day while others say to take 50,000 for acne. (I think it partially has to with where the vitamin A is derived from.)

I have only been taking these supplements for 3 days and so far my skin doesn't seem to be as oily, but I haven't had any other improvements yet. (But I know it will take time.)

For others who are taking vitamins, how much do you take?

Thank you!
