: I am on minocycline-100mg capsules once a day and retin-a. i was thinking about taking b5 while on these 2, any suggestions?...and how much if it is ok to do so?also...would it be better to take at night with the mino or in the morning?
: Thank you in advance!!
This is the exact regimine that I'm on and it's working GREAT! Here's what I do... I take my 100 mg of mino in the morning and use retin-a only at night. If you take B5 with this, you'll need to spread it out during the day. I take 2000 mg in the morning, 2000 mg mid-day, and another 2000 mg before bed. That way you have a steady source throughout your day. Some people take up to 10,000mg and then once their skin clears up, they begin to steadily decrease it to maybe 2000mg a day or so. May take a couple of months to get there.
I'm not sure if it's the B5 or the mino that is working so well, but I'm actually thinking of quitting on the mino and seeing what happens.
