Hey, I've recently switched to taking the powdered form of Pantothenic acid. I was wondering, how many teaspoons equals to about 10 grams of Panto? I take 2 tablespoons, 1 in the morning and when at night and I have no idea whether or not I even take 10 grams.

Just over a week been taking and see absolutely no improvement but i know its not long enough to give it yet, its just when you hear lots of people saying they see improvements after the first week you feel as if its not working. I think my skin still feels oily and more than 1 spot keeps appearing everyday, i hope this stuff helps me and i hope its soon.

I just wanna say that b5 kept me clear for years on end, and i have now been on roaccutane and wish i had stayed on b5 instead... Won't go into why but B5 kept me clear so long as i used it properly!!

Oh btw i think 1 teason is aprox 3 grams? i will check later for you Lord.

Paul. We're in the same boat. Don't give up. I've been on it for a week also and I haven't seen any radical changes. I'll be praying for us both to have clear skin from b5.

Lamarr, I appreciate your help :)

My face is getting worse and worse, my skin is so flaky, dry and feels so tight. No moisturiser seems to help with it. Im getting more and more spots! When i wake up in the morning theres always new ones, when i get home from work theres even more new ones! Im almost at the 2 week mark now, i just hope B5 is going to work for me. If it doesnt i will no idea what to do and where to turn.

EDIT: BP is doing absolutely nothing now for my skin, its not stopping any spots from coming up, and its obviously not helping using it whilst my face is so dry and flaky. Im going to stop using it and see what happens.

Has anyone used B5 and not had any improvement after an extended period of time? Or has it pretty much worked for everyone?

yes, i can confirm that vitamin b5 is working for me, i'm 99% clear of acne while taking 10g of vitamin b5 per day. the side effect is a very dry skin, especially after taking a shower.

^Cool, I'm glad it's working for you.

I guess I'll try it, but I'm a bit skeptical because it seems too easy.

Ive just washed my hair and noticed a few hairs come out and am now pretty worried. Im taking a B Complex so im not sure what to do as i thought that stopped anything happening like hair loss. What do people recommend i do? Should i stop using the B5 straight away?

After all of these pages of the thread, would you guys say that the majority of the people that have taken it have serious side effects? Or is it just that it's a vocal minority?

Im breaking out way more on my face, spots are appearing on my neck and arms. Ive been taking it just over 2 weeks and havnt noticed any improvement and have also had to deal with diahhrea. When people have broken out from taking B5 how long has it taken to slow down and eventually stop?
