Vitamin B5

I have read so much lately on the wonders of B5 for acne and oily skin.
I suffer with very oily skin and do get a few spots would say mild.
I started on a low dose and have now moved up to 10 g per day 5 tablets 4 times per day and also take a b complex tablet.
I have been doing this for 9 days now and have seen no improvement.
Just wondered if anyone know how long it takes to work.

Re: Vitamin B5

hi there..just be careful with Vitamin B5 (panthothenic acid)
it kills biotin be sure you take Biotin 1000 with it...
Excessive B5 is shown to lead to hair loss so in order to beat that take biotin and inositol...u can get that @ any GNC store or walmart...
