Vitamins and Accutane ok?

Recommended Posts

I am starting to ZMA as a sleep aid but I will be prescribed Accutane tomorrow. I am wondering if taking ZMA and multivitamins and fish oil and other vitamins are ok? Thanks

I am not sure what ZMA, i'd ask your derm about that one. or any doctor you can get ahold of.

but NO MULTIVITAMINS! because it contains 100% of your daily vitamin A and you cannot intake vitamin A while on accutane. fish oil is fine, and the other vitamins i'm sure are find if they do NOT contain vitamin A.

if you are taking them for your hair/skin/energy etc. all you need is the multi B vitamins. and vitamin E.

Bs help with healthy hair growth (among others)

and if you take 300mg or more of vitamin E a day- theres an obvious tend in reduced side effects from the accutane.

good luck!

Thanks. I was supposed to pick up my script today but apparently the derm hasn't even looked at my lab results (which were done yesterday!) :(.
