What vitamins should I take while on Accutane?

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone, I just started taking 40mg of Claravis twice everyday for 5 months. I'm wondering what are some of the vitamins you are taking along with Accutane to help lower the possibility of some of the side effects? Also, have any of them helped? Thanks for any help.

I'd definitely recommend omegas. I've been taking an Omega 3,6,9 supp from GNC and it does wonders. Skin isn't nearly as dry, and it keeps me from getting rashes or dry patches like I got before.

I'd like to start taking a daily multivitamin, but they have a decent amount of vitamin A, which was recommended I stay away from... any one know if it's ok to take in a daily vitamin?

Do Not take any vitamins with Vit A in it....Accutane is a derivate of Vit A in high doses. It is not recommended. Most multivitamins have A in it.

Talk to your derm about any supplements you plan to take before taking them with accutane, Or at least let them know.

Some have said supplements help with certian side effects, others it made no diffrence. Doesn't hurt to be healthy though.
