Yes, it depends on your body's need for Vitamin D... Although we do store some fat soluable vitamins in out fat stores, we can only get to them if we're releasing the fat, such as in the winter.

If you bathe frequently that may be the reason. Don't brush or soap your skin where possible.

If anything Accutane appears to ramp up active vitamin D (1,25-dihydroxy) production. I don't think you can draw any conclusions about whether vitamin D treatment will clear Accutane faster than normal.
