Post Accutane and B-5?

Well after 5 months and 3 weeks, I am still breaking out... which really sucks cause the B-5 was working but I get pimples almost daily now.

I am going to go and get Accutane, and end this frustration once and for all.

I was wondering if I could take Accutane at the same time I take B-5? I still have lotsa B-5, and it controls some of the acne, and I was going to slowly get off of it, but I wanna start Accutane real soon.

Can I bee on B-5 and Accutane? I am only go with the rest of teh B-5 I have left, maybe a couple weeks, gradually lowering dosage.

I was told that you aren't supposed to take high doses of any other vitamin while on accutane just as a precaution. Maybe since you've been on the B5 you won't have such a bad initial breakout though and maybe you could just stop it a few days before starting the accutane.

It does control the acne... the B-5. It won't eliminate it though. So I am gonna start Accutane as soon as I can.

Thx. for the info, So if I stop a few days before with the B-5. Then start Accutane, I should be ok?
