Always talk to your doctor before taking any new supplement or medication to avoid possible interactions with other medicines you may take or existing health issues you may have. If you take vitamin A, you must be careful not to take too much. Vitamin A is stored in the body and can reach dangerously toxic levels. For example, taking vitamin A along with a retinoid medication, such as acitretin (Soriatane), tretinoin (Atralin, Avita, Renova, Retin-A, Tretin-X, Vesanoid) or isotretinoin (Accutane, Amnesteem, Claravis, Sotret) can significantly increase your risk for poisoning. Be sure to consult your doctor before taking vitamin A.
