Hi and thanks for your query.

It depends on why the vitamin A is taken and if there are any comorbid conditions previously, but generally, taking 10000 IU for 7 days does not cause liver damage. In fact, in Vitamin A deficiency, 10000 - 20000 IU are given for 2 months as a regimen.

Hope this helps.
