Hello All Posted Image. So I'm a 17 year old and have had moderate to severe acne. I HAVE TAKEN EVERYTHING YOU HAVE NO IDEA. OXY WHATVER TO RETIN A TO DOXCYCLINE just everything everything. You have no idea i've done everything.Well I finally got prescribed Accutane (Claravis) took it for id say 2-3 weeks (40 MG) and OMG IT WAS NEARLY ALL GONE SERIOUSLY EVERYTHING a girl even said my skin looked "FLAWLESS" but it insanely chapped my lips and made them peel and cracked the corners of my lips.Howver at times I felt my Bowel feeling like pressured and felt bad like a poking pain also At the time I just couldn't deal with the lips because I had prom coming up and Graduation. Too many important things I didn't wanna deal with that at the time. So I stopped taking it and slowly but surely did my Acne come back STRONG. Researching Around I learned about vitamin B5 and decided to give it a try. Ive now been officialy on it for 2 weeks doing the full course 20 500 mg pills per day. Since today it has officially been 2 weeks and the effects of B5 take 2 weeks to fully show I thought i would start a log. My IB ended about a day ago and it SEEMS like the b5 is going to start fully working now because compared to what I was going through, my acne is looking clearer in chunks. I'm NOT taking a multivitamin. I am considering going on Accutane if no more results show by the end of the month. I am willing to risk crohns disease and all because I can' stand this Acne anymore I have teared up before over it and whoever has Acne knows exactly how it feels.Plus I had so much success in a short time with Accutane.

Here's Me On 2 Weeks

Details- Puirtans Pride Time Released 500MG

Does anyone know if changing the brand Of B5 will affect me at all? Thank You

Of Note: Under B5, I cannot expect it to work faster than Accutane. So I am being patient. And I am doing 20 pills a day=10 grams I THINK thats how many grams it is. Nonetheless 20 Pills

ABOUT to be 4 weeks in 2 or 3 days.
  • 1 New Pimple NOT NOTICEABLE AT ALL AND VERY SMALL.
  • Drier Skin
  • NO BREAKOUTS HAPPENING
  • Improving? Yes! IT IS taking time however
  • Still Waiting for The Acne That I Do Have To Go Away
  • Like I've Said I Cannot Expect This To Work Faster Than Accutane So I Am Giving It Time

The Thought Of How My Face Could Be At This Pace When I reach 2 Months Is VERY Exciting Actually Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image
