Potential Interactions
Vitamin E appears to increase intestinal absorption and tissue uptake of vitamin A. Because of this effect, some doctors have used the combination of vitamin E and vitamin A for various skin conditions that are usually treated with vitamin A alone. The addition of vitamin E improved outcomes, while allowing for lower (and safer) doses of vitamin A.
