Hey people

Just wanna know whats the major difference between tane and Vitamin A?

How do the doses work in comparison?

for example is 20,000 I.U same as 20mg of tane?

I also notice that the RDA (recommended daily allowance) differs greatly from country to country

like 20,000 IU in USA is 400% RDA

In UK only 9,000 IU Is around 400% RDA

I know many people have had great success in just taking vitamin A

dude, completely different.

20,000 iu is a far cry from accutane 20 mg.

You often need 400,000 iu for therapeutic effects using vitamin a. If you are a guy, 900,000. vitamin A is metabolized into accutane in your body. That being said, vitamin is A and not synthetic.

The reason they created accutane was that they noticed relapse when people stopped using vitamin a. Also, they wanted to minimize side effects (so much for that...)
