WARNINGS Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet. Use only as directed and always read the label If you are pregnant, or considering becoming pregnant, do not take vitamin A supplements without consulting your healthcare professional. The recommended daily amount of vitamin A from all sources is 700mcg retinol equivalents for women and 900mcg retinol equivalents for men. When taken in excess of 3000mcg retinol equivalents, vitamin A can cause birth defects. Concomitant use of vitamin A supplements and isotretinoin may lead to an increased risk of toxicity. Use of lipid lowering drugs (eg cholestyramine, colestipol) may reduce levels of vitamin A in the body. Supplements containing vitamin A may be beneficial. Research has pointed out a connection between relatively low levels of pre-formed vitamin A and possible birth defects. To avoid any potential problems with Vitamin A during pregnancy use its water soluble precursor, beta-carotene. Toxicity can occur in adults who take in excess of 50,000iu’s daily for several years.
Use with caution in individuals with liver damage, cirrhosis or hepatitis.
