    Accutane vs Pantethine??

    Heello everyone,

    I start me accutane treatment tomorrow. Now I was just wondering before I take the plunge does the B5/Pantethine thing really work. I mean if it does I would love to avoid accutane. My problem is with acne but also with the **excessive** oily skin .. Will Pantethine reduce the oil just as much as accutane does? Cuz I am figuring the oil is probly going to come back which would sux and i will end up having to find something to stop this.. so anyone out there can give a comparision of Accutane vs Pantethine or b5

    thanks alot!!

    hi tj,

    ive been on two courses of accutane, and both times it dried me up completely. (think i was on about 80mg per day or something). the effect that 900mg of pantethine has on my oil reduction is not as much accutane caused, but reduces my oiliness by about 80% which is superb anyhow !

    if your problem is oily skin, and only mild acne, then i would say avoid the accutane, and go for the pantethine, but if its the other way round, give the accutane a go.. its not as bad as people say.

    Thanks chris,
    I was wondering .. how long do you have to be on Panthetine for. I mean is this a life long type of deal? I don't care really it's worth the price. If you don't mind , why are you taking Panthetine ? didn't 2 courses of accutane do it? or did it just cure the acne but not the oil?
