Wants to take accutane. Can I take flaxseed oil, vitamin E, vitamin H supplements in conjunction with it?

Hi, I am going to be taking accutane on Monday and I want to know what supplements I can take while on it? I am thinking about a protein shake with no vitamins ( I work out) maybe creatine? Fish oil, ZMA, Vimax, pre workout (non-stimulant) could you direct me on this? And maybe what are the supplements you would advise to take? I heard flaxseed oil, vitamin E , vitamin H? Sincerely

Hi, Welcome to HCM.
There are no contraindication to supplements while on Accutane.
Since you workout, I'd advise to take whey protein powder as supplement along with egg whites for proteins.
To combat side effects caused by accutane take calcium plus vitamin D and fish oil supplement. Also apply lot of moisturizer while you are on accutane since the first thing you'll observe is dryness of skin.
Hope I helped. Feel free to ask followup queries in care of doubt.
