Accutane And Vitamin A

I know you're supposed to avoid vitamin A supplements, but is it ok to eat foods high in vitamin A? I've been having a bad breakout and I'm wondering if it's because I've been eating lots of sweet potatoes recently. I'm almost at 3 months so I'm assuming it's not part of an initial breakout, right?

Foods with high vitamin A = vitamin A supplements ( In the same amounts )

Vitamin A is vitamin A, in pill form or in vegetable form. That applies to juices also in case you're wondering.

That's what I was thinking, but isn't vitamin A absorbed differently if it's from a vegetable?

haha, don't make it so complicated, it's the exact same thing. When I eat an excess amount of vitamin A, my lower back hurts in just a few hours. Hopefully that answered all your vitamin a questions. =)
