Was on low dose (20mg) accutane for about year and a bit. Worse decision of my life - caused me seb derm and blood shot eye in one corner of it.

Anyways...

How can I reverse Accutane (retinoid) overdose?

If you do supplement with vitamins D and K2 (which is crucial to both D and A working properly within the body), it would probably be prudent to make sure you're consuming enough fats/oils with them for absorption, since D and K2 are fat-soluble.

would an accutane 'overdose' be similar to vitamin A toxicity...if so look into Hypervitaminosis A.

i have also read* that vitamin D is protective against vitamin A toxicity (& vice versa), so get your D3 levels checked & supplement D3 if required. Also vitamin K is important to balance A & D (i also seem to recall*).

* sorry no refs at hand (...but google should get you there if needed)

I don't have your answer but I was glad when my son decided to come off it after 4 weeks. My brother and sister work in mental health - psychiatrist etc and they are not keen the effects they have seen on some of their patients using it. I would have imagined that if you just wait time will get it all out of your system I've no expertise.
