Patient : I read on your site that the maximum dosage of Vitamin A is 3000 IU. I have been taking a multi-vitamin that contains 4000 IU of Retinol. My husband and I were planning to start trying to conceive a child this month. After reading this information, I am planning to go off the multi-vitamin. My question is, should I wait awhile before trying to conceive so as to avoid birth defects that could be caused by Vitamin A? If so, for how long? Thanks!
