Did you initially start off taking more than 1 - 2 grams? I've been taking 5-6 grams for about 3 days, haven't seen any difference in acne or oil reduction (but I'm being patient). How long until you started to see results from your regimen?
I think you need to start of at a higher dose 8-10g per day to start seeing immediate results. I took 8-10g a day for a month, then cut down to 4g a day. When I first started I saw immediate results within 3 days.
Guys did you experience any side-effects with B5? I took it for 2-3months and I would have diahrroea everyday as well as severe stomach cramps. This was only on a 2grams dosage!!!?! I didnt notice any difference in my acne unfortunately. I'm amazed that people can take so many grams of this stuff as supplementary without worrying about the long term effects of organ damage?! Is there any research illustrating that B5 has NO short/long term effects on our body?
I would try a higher dosage and a different brand so long as I don't get diahrroea or stomach cramps again as I have given up on antibiotics. But I would only do this if it was safe...
