Vitamin A Drug Interactions

Orlistat
Orlistat can interfere with the absorption of vitamin A. You should take these products at different times of the day in order to avoid this drug interaction.
 
Retinoids
Retinoids and vitamin A have additive toxic effects, meaning that combining them could increase the risk of serious toxicity. If you take a retinoid, do not take vitamin A.
 
Tetracycline Antibiotics
Combining vitamin A with a tetracycline antibiotic may increase the risk of high pressure in the brain (intracranial hypertension). If you take a tetracycline antibiotic on a regular basis, it is probably best to avoid taking vitamin A.
 
Warfarin
A high vitamin A dosage may increase the risk of bleeding due to warfarin. If you take warfarin, do not take high-dose vitamin A supplementation without your healthcare provider's approval and supervision.
