Vitamin b12 and accutane / isotretinoin

Posted , 1 user is following.

My vitamin B12 level is 260 pg/ml.

My doctor prescribed 1500 mcg (methylcobalamin) vitamin B12 dietary supplement for 3months (daily one)

I am also taking isotretinoin/accutane , I am at end of my course only 2 months left

Will taking vitamin B12 supplement aggravates acne again?

Is my B12 low

Can I increase with food ( I am vegetarian)

Shall I take nutritional yeast instead of B12 tablets

I am scared taking tablets will again give me acne.

I had taken B12 injections year back and got acne at the same time for which I am taking accutane.
