    Can you take B5 with accutane?

    Hi guys. I've been reading all these posts on B5 and it sounds like it's working wonders for everyone. I'm on accutane right now and just stopped taking Orthotri-cyclen. the accuatne initial breakout accompanied by the breakouts Ortho was giving me have made my skin a mess and I was wondering if I could take B5 to help tame my breakouts, even if I'm on accutane? Thanks guys.

    I don't think you should take both at the same time, but that's just my opinion. Consult with your doctor fist before you take anything with Accutane. Accutane already does a number on your internal systems and you do not need to add stress to your body by taking another medication or vitamin. Also, Accutane causes dryness and I'm sure the b-5 will cause even more dryness.
