Aquasol A Parenteral (water-miscible vitamin A palmitate) is vitamin A used to treat vitamin A deficiency. Aquasol A usually has few to no side effects when used in recommended doses. Some side effects of Aquasol A Parenteral may include tiredness, nausea, vomiting, decreased appetite, irritability, headache, dryness or cracking of the lips or skin, or hair loss.

The adult dose of Aquasol A is 100,000 Units daily for three days followed by 50,000 daily for two weeks. Pediatric dose for children 1 to 8 years old is 17,500 to 35,000 Units daily for 10 days.
