A combination of vitamin A and retinoic acid or its chemical derivatives (e.g. drugs for the treatment of skin diseases) should be avoided as there is a risk of vitamin A overdosing.
There is evidence that vitamin E and vitamin K influence each other in the formation of coagulation factors.
The effects of certain oral medicines used to prevent blood clotting (coumarin or indanedione preparations) can be influenced by high doses of vitamin E.
