Vitamin E and Zinc- take during or after accutane?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have both Vitamin E and Zinc in tablet form and I wanted to know whether it is OK to take these at the same time as accutane or wait until after?

Main concern was whether the Vitamin E and Zinc could counter the effectiveness of accutane.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Many thanks.

Hi. I take Zinc, vitamin e, fish oil, flaxseed oil, vitamin c, among others. Just like the last post says....no more vitamin A---Accutane is already a poisoning of it:)

You can take them during Accutane, no worries. Just avoid Vitamin A. The only thing that lowers the effectiveness of Accutane is failure to take it with a meal with some fat in it.

Yeah since I'm a strict vegetarian- I have to go out my way to eat fatty foods at times!
