Questions Regarding Supplements Before Starting Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! My derm prescribed me today 40 mg/ day of Accutane for 6 weeks for my long-existing acne problem. I am going to start taking them next week, after I finish with my exams, and in the meanwhile i have a few questions I would be grateful anyone would bother to answer.

First of all, can I continue taking zinc (30 mg/day) whilst on Accutane? How about Oregano Oil or Coconut oil?

Should I consider taking vitamin E to help with the possible side effects?

Could I use emu oil when my face will get dry? Would it help with the scarring?

My derm did not really know what to answer me, so he just said to stop taking any supplements, but if there are any that could help me with the battle against acne and not interfere with Accutane, I am willing to take them.

Thank you for your answers in advance.
