250 mg a day is way too low. That likely won't do anything for acne. When taking pantothenic acid to fight acne, you need to start off taking high doses. You might want to start with 5 grams a day. If that doesn't work, don't give up. Increase it up to 10 grams a day or whatever level works for you. When I was taking 5 grams a day it didn't help, but as soon as I increased it to 10 grams a day, I saw results immediately. I kept that up for a few months, and now I take 2-4 grams daily. I guess the body requires a lower amount after you've been taking high amounts for a time. And there are no harmful or toxic side effects from taking B5.
