Question: Vitamin A in the form of Retinyl Acetate - Can it cause toxicity? I know that Vitamin A in the form of Beta-Carotene is safe, but what about Retinyl Acetate? Especially when taken with Accutane (Isotretinoin)? (In the multivitamin I'm taking, Vitamin A is in the form of both.) I'm wondering because I take multivitamin every day in addition to isotretinoin. I remember that the doctor said vitamins are fine, but I'd like to make sure because I've heard someone say that Vitamin A taken with Accutane may increase the possibility of side effects. Also, does Vitamin A toxicity cause abdominal pain? Any comment is appreciated!

Answer: Yes
