So what's up? Should I stop taking it altogether, try 30mg, or take it after a fuller meal? Needless to say I'm a little worried about taking zinc now.. but I really wanted to give it a try.

I think my acne is from toxic build up. I've always eaten well...and I took a hormone test and allergy food test, everything was negative. I think I will do a liver, colon cleanse soon.

Zinc tends to do that in most people when you take it on an empty stomach. I can only recommend that you keep taking it on an empty stomach and eventually you get used to it and it won't make you nauseous anymore. Also don't take Zinc with fiber (fruit/veggies) because it inhibits absorption.
If you really don't think you can stomach the zinc alone, take it with some meat.

you should be taking b12 anyway, it is probably the second most likely vitamin people are deficient in, in natural foods it is in 3 forms, as adenosylcobalamin, hydroxocobalamin, and methocobalamin.
methocobalamin is used to convert homocysteine into methionine and methionine is converted into cysteine to make glutathione, the bodys most powerful cellular antioxident. clams might be the best source or find a good supplement. there are no supplements that exist with all three in desirable quantities and only 2 manufacturers on the market that use hydroxocobalamin. most who make these supplements use too high of quantities that result in side effects. cyanocobalamin is an ok choice as it converted into methyl and adenyl and possibly hydroxo forms in the body.
vitamin d and calcium are the other most likely deficits.

yea too much of anything is bad....duh. People on here are crazy about this vitamin over that one. It's quite overwhelming and why not just be healthy? That's all I am doing and yes I am seeing a DIFF. And not all the time will your acne be cure by a vitamin at all. It'll just be 'good' for you. Until you develop some shit in a few years from it.

Can't even remember why i take it now but never really noticed it does anything, a bit like vitamin c and fish oil.
But my my latest bottle just run out which was 30mg gluconate so i moved on to my Picolinate 50 mg the other day.
At first i noticed i was getting some crazy ass dreams but didnt think anything of it or make the connection but then the other night my sleep became highly disrupted, in some kind of weird state like i was semi-conscious or something the whole night, not particularly nice.
Maybe many reasons for this but i wont be having zinc again.

Currently the supplements I take are Vitex (I have hormonal problems), B complex and a Probiotic. I used to take multivitamins but I was told they aren't that effective, but maybe I'll invest in a decent brand..
OH + I also started taking Pure Synergy (supposedly is very nutrient dense superfood) aaaand I drink ACV in water, lemon water, lots of matcha green tea and peppermint tea
