In brief: Yes

Vitamin d supplements in particular are always a good idea.
But keep in mind, either one can be taken to excess, especially vitamin a, so be mindful of how much you are taking, and if you're not sure, discuss with your doctor.

In brief: Vitamins and DVT

Taking vitamins A or D should not have any affect on a DVT.
Vitamin K is given as an antagonist to Coumadin to reverse its thinning of the blood when coumadin is given as a blood thinner. If you are on a blood thinner and take multivitamins be sure to check that the multi vitamin does not contain vitamin K.

In brief: Not a problem

Vitamin a and d are not involved in clotting.
If you have a dvt, i would be more concerned about the prescription medications you are taking. Vitamins in any form will not help this condition. Vitamin e has some anticoagulant activity, but is not strong enough to protect your body if you have a dvt.
