b5 dosage...?

i ordered twinlab b5 a week ago, and it's coming in the mail tomorrow.

i can't wait to start....(this will be combined w/ minocycline & tetrinoin)

but how much should i take?

should i start at 3g's a day (6 capsules), and then work my way up to 10g's (20 capsules). that's a helluva lot of pills to swallow every day.

should i just pop 2 in every time i get a chance?
before i eat? after i eat? anytime? does it matter?

how long before i start seeing it's effects?
keep in mind that my face is already a lot less oily because i've been taking minocycline.

thanks.

Re: b5 dosage...?

cool.
i've read it won't have any effect unless you take 5-10g/day.

i just bought another month's supply of minocycline ($63 ugh)
i also got:
500 tablets of 500mg Vitamin C
100 tablets of calcium (333mg) magnesium (125mg) and zinc (8mg) [all in 1 tablet]
and
100 tablets of 1000mg Flaxseed oil. (i've heard this is good for the skin)

now what? lol.
from what i've read all of these have one thing or another to do with the production of oil/the breakdown of fat in the body...and are all related to acne.

what sort of dosages should i take?

thanks.
