Post Started B5 Today

Well i have finally started B5 at a pretty high dose today.
I am follwing the advice of poreoilyme and taking 6 grammes a day.
I am pretty nervous about taking such a high dose but poreoilyme,s posts have given me the courage to give it a go,reading about the terrific results she has had with 6 grammes daily of B5 is enough for me to give it a go.
I am taking 12 500mg tablets daily, divided up into 3 x 500mg 4 times daily.
I have a wedding to go to in three weeks time so my goal is to have hardly any new spots by then,i can cope with a few little ones just no big cysts please.
I was doing pretty good while taking 2 grammes daily but decided to stop for a few days and immediatley broke out again.
I suspect you have to slowly decrease the amount of B5 you take over a period of time like you do with antibiotics,until you find a suitable matinence dose.
The thought of my oil production slowing right down also makes me really excited especially as the summer weather is here at last in the U.K.
Anyway any tips or hints from anyone who is or has taken B5 at this dosage would be really appreciated.
For instance how long do i stay at the dosage i start with?
And when the time is right how do i go about reducing my intake of B5?
I will keep posting with my results.
