Avoid supplements that are blood thinners. Generally vitamin E in large doses, and any others with this action.

Not really. Minocycline (an antibiotic) may increase the risk of pigmentation after treatment. Also, avoiding any iron supplements is recommended.

None in particular, although I would consult with your doctor. Some herbals contain aspirin or other blood thinners which may increase the extent of bruising that you experience, and iron containing compounds in vitamins may increase your risk for post sclerotherapy pigmentation.
