Tazorac (Tazarotene) 0.05%: Health Risks?

Recommended Posts

Howdy ya'll. Last summer, a derm took a look at my moderate body acne (mostly concentrated on tmy back, with lots of marks from old pimples) and prescribed me Tazorac, telling me that' it'll start showing results within six weeks. I didn't take it regularly afterwards, but have been doing so for the last 2-3 weeks in preparation for this summer.

The stuff looks like its been working so far, at least in controlling new pimples. But I just finished reading an anecdote on another forum about how its harmful to apply Tazorac to large areas of the body such as the back, as the medication gets absorbed into the bloodstream and can result in Vitamin A toxicity. I already take a daily multivitamin with plenty of Vitamin A so I'm worried about this. Can I get a second opinion from anyone knowledgeable, or who was/is using Tazorac for body acne? Thanks!
