Answer

The prognosis is generally excellent in patients with vitamin toxicity. [12] Patients with vitamin E toxicity, for example, have an excellent prognosis once the supplements are discontinued. Patients with mild bleeding episodes are likely to fully recover once vitamin K is administered and the vitamin E supplements are discontinued.

Patients with vitamin E toxicity who develop an intracranial hemorrhage have an increased mortality rate. However, with proper diagnosis and management, many patients with this condition survive and recover some or all of their previous functions.
