Vitamin A Overview

Vitamin A is a group of unsaturated nutritional organic compounds that includes retinol, retinal, retinoic acid, and several provitamin A carotenoids (most notably beta-carotene).[1] Vitamin A has multiple functions: it is important for growth and development, for the maintenance of the immune system and good vision.[2] Vitamin A is needed by the retina of the eye in the form of retinal, which combines with protein opsin to form rhodopsin, the light-absorbing molecule[3] necessary for both lo...

Comfortine Ointment
7 Replies RSS
I am trying to find out where I can buy Comfortine Ointment. It is a Pink thick cream sold in a jar or tube. It use to use it for diaper rashes or sores and it was very good. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. ## Do you remember when was the last time you came across this product? Have not had any luck finding it either. It's too bad when good products are discontinued or suddenly disappear. From what I have gathered this ointment contains Zinc Oxide + Vitamin A + Vitamin D (from Cod Liver Oil) as the effective ingredients. There are other topical Zinc based ointments out there, but none with that exact formulation. Another possibility would be to see if a pharmacist could create a custom compound based on those ingredients. Has anybody else had any luck finding this or a...

peach oblong pill with line
1 Reply RSS
Small round peach /pink pill with only a line in the middle ?? What could it be ## Hi Junebug, Without an imprint I initially thought this would be like finding a needle in a haystack, BUT I did come across a pill that fits your description by the name of "I-Vite oral". Apparently it's some sort of pharmaceutical multivitamin containing vitamin A, C, and E, along with lutein and other minerals. Running an image search for "I-Vite tablets" on your search engine should yield results with photographs of the pill itself. They described it as an oval peach, scored tablet, but I'm not sure about its approximate size. Can you please post back and let me know if this tablet looks familiar?

white round pill line down the middle no markings smells like a vitamin
1 Reply RSS
A FRIEND SHOWED ME THE PILL. IT AS A LARGE WHITE ROUND PILL. IT HAS A LINE DOWN THE MIDDLE ON ONE SIDE. THAT IS THE ONLY THING ON IT. IT SMELLS LIKE A VITAMIN. I HAVE TRIED LOOKING IT UP BUT CAN'T FIND ANYTHING ON IT. ## Hello, Maddison! How are you? There's a very good chance that it is a vitamin, since it has no markings. All prescription tablets in the U.S. are required to have markings to enable their identification. The only tablets without markings would have to be over the counter products. That said, there are many possibilities for what it might contain, but if it smells like a vitamin, then that's as good of a guess as any. Is there anything else I can help with?
