Smile B5 Update

sorry, been away for about two months after my PC tower blew up, work commitments, couple of old relationship problems resurfacing and my Grandfather dying.

Anyway, been on B5 now since the end of May, originally started out on 20 500mg capsules a day for the first couple of months before dropping down to 3 capsules a day as advised, this bought my acne back during July so I've now upped myself back to 9 capsules a day and it's back under control again. I'm also using a zinc suplement in the morning and at night.

So far no serious side effects, maybe I'm slightly lethargic but with what's happened lately I've been down anyway. I'll usually get about one pimple a week now, some of which can be painful but other than that my other scars from Accutane are still fading, gradually. I've maybe had a tiny outbreak on my arms that I didn't have before since going on B5, but I'd rather have it there than on my face.

so far so good
