-What other supplements should I take with it?
Personally, I'm on TwinLab 500mg at 6 grams a day and I'm clear. I did try GNC but it didn't work on me, either beacause it wasn't a high enough dose or the brand wasn't very good. I only did 2 grams a day with that brand. I would suggest starting out low before you go all crazy and take 10grams. Try 1 gram, some people have said that 1 grams is all they need. You might not even need that much. Although you might need more. It depends because everyone is different. My one BIG piece of advice is DO NOT TAKE B5 ALONE. Please take a good Multi-Vitamin, B-Complex vitamin and if you have red spots try taking a Vitamin C pill ( I take 1000mg chewables). I use to not post on this board because I didn't have any good advice for anyone that seemed to work on me. I only read the board for months trying new things. I always told myself that once I was clear I was going to come back on the board and try to help others out like they did me. So understand this is coming from someone that has been through alot with acne.
