In what forms can vitamin A be used?

Vitamin A is available in forms such as capsules, tablets, liquid, and solution. Do not take more of this product than directed because too much can cause severe toxicity and be life-threatening. If you miss a dose, skip the dose, and return to your regular schedule, without double dosing. If you are taking the oral liquid form of vitamin A, you can drop it directly into the mouth or mix it with cereal, juice, or other food. Injections should always be done by a licensed health care professional.
