Fish Oil Or Cod Liver Oil While On Accutane? And Other Supplements

Recommended Posts


Should you be taking cod liver oil or regular fish oil while on Accutane? Or neither? I know cod liver oil has vitamin A, and you're not supposed to consume any extra vitamin A while on Accutane. I'm just not sure about the vitamin A content of regular fish oil. Also, what other vitamins/herbs should you be taking on Accutane? Currently I'm taking:

Milk thistle

vit C

Vit E



Considering B complex as well

A source of omega3 fatty acids is not a bad idea.

Most people don't need the omega 6 in our society (becuase we are already so bombarded in omega 6) ..... but flaxseed oil is quite a balanced and natural product too.

Thanks for the replies. But my real question was whether or not there is any vitamin A content in fish oil or cod liver oil that should be of concern since youre already getting a lot from accutane
