    B5-How many mg should I start off with?

    I keep reaging all this great stuff about B5. I would like to start taking it, but how much do I take, How long does it take to work, any certain brand better than others or are they all the same,Does it help with old acne? Sorry so may questions. Thanks

    I read on another board that b5 needs to be kept in certain temperatures, so you need to get it from good places otherwise it might be not as effective. I got mine at a vitamin store, and it seems to be working. I heard that Solgar is a good brand, and GNC is the worst. You can get it at any health store. Look under Pantothenic Acid instead of b5. You can take anywhere from 2000 mgs to 20,000 mgs. I am taking between 2000 and 3000. You can see how it goes and increase your dose. Maybe take 2000 in the morning 2000 with lunch and 2000 before bed. I think 5000 mgs is an average daily dose. The pills come in 500 mgs and 1000 mgs...just get whatever you prefer. For me, I noticed less oil on the second day. It's been about 5 days and I have only had one new zit..and not a huge pimple either, just a little one. I would say it is definitely worth a try. Good luck!

    WHAT? Why is GNC the worst? I just started that one - it seems fine to me!
