Can you have an overdose of vitamin A?
When people hear the word “overdose,” they usually think of overdosing or taking too much drugs. However, you can also potentially overdose on vitamins. In particular, the commonly overdosed vitamins include iron, vitamin D, vitamin E, B vitamins, and lastly, vitamin A1.
With regard to a vitamin A overdose, this condition is referred to as hypervitaminosis A. This essentially means that a person has consumed too much vitamin A to the point that it’s already toxic to their body. The most common way for this to happen would be if a person is taking supplements. Though, a person would need to take a lot of vitamin A in order to have hypervitaminosis A.
