I have pretty mild acne and was thinking of taking 500mg or 1g a day. Would this dosage have any at all impact? Thanks.

It all depends on the individual when it comes to B5. I don't want to say that 500mg-1g WON"T help you, but chances are you would need a higher dosage to get a kick start to being clear. I took 6g for about 2 months. I completely cleared up in just over a month, but recently started experiencing occassional stabbing stomach pains. I quit the B5 and they went away. I would suggest experimenting a little bit. Try maybe 3g for a couple weeks and see if you notice any improvement.

I'm taking 1g a day. Other people laugh and say I need to take at least 4-10g to notice a difference.
Well.......It hasn't even been a week yet and my oil, especially on my scalp has slightly decreased.
It takes a couple months though to see full results.
If you know you have a b5 defeciency, then I think it's fine to take 4...6...10g a day. Kinda crazy though if you ask me. Too many pills to pop.
