I just bought Vitamin A and Zinc today to see what kind of results i'd get. How much and when should I take these? Are there any side-effects? I heard taking Vitamin A is like taking Accutane.

You should prolly take around 75,000 I.U. to 100,000 I.U. of Vitamin A a day. But take it in beta-carotene form. When you take beta-carotene it is converted into Vitamin A I believe by the liver, and your body only uses as much as you need, it eliminates the excess.

Then the zinc, take around 50 mg to 100 mg of it a day. Don't take over 100 mg a day though. And no, if you take those in those doses then it won't hurt ya, no side effects.

No, I don't think taking vitamin A is the same as taking Accutane...it's different. And I know you're not taking accutane, but someone else commented that they think it's not a good thing to take vitamin A while on accutane, and I want to make sure you know that if you ever do...DO NOT take vitamin A with it...it will damage your liver...
