  • I have RP with moderate loss. My question is simple, where can i purchase vitamin A ?

  • Everyone I've spoken to that take the Vit A gets it from Carlson Labs. Just do a google search for them. The ones I know that take it, take 16,000 IU's a day. Recommended liver exam at least once a year.

  • Our Retinologist said to not use Vit A that the levels you would need to assist with RP would be detrimental to the liver and other vital organs. I would check with your doctor before purchasing and beginning Vit A therapy. The retinologist suggested a multi vitamin with lutein and fishoil and not vitamin A...unless combined in a Multi.
    Good luck

    DHA 400 mg (be careful of vitamin E in DHA)

    Avoid Vitamin E
