Aquasol A Parenteral (water-miscible vitamin A palmitate) is used to treat vitamin A deficiency. It is vitamin A. Common side effects 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. Infant dose is 7,500 to 15,000 Units daily for 10 days. Aquasol A may interact with oral birth control pills, cholestyramine, or mineral oil. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Aquasol A should be used only if prescribed. Consult your doctor before taking vitamin A supplements. Although some vitamin A is necessary for the normal development of a baby, doses in excess of the U.S. recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of 5,000 USP units per day may cause birth defects. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
