Vitamin B5 Not Working After A Month?

Recommended Posts

I've been taking 16g of vitamin b5 for 25 days now and I've seen minimal to no results. I take 4g 4 times a day. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

I think people gave up on that as a cure ages ago. There were a lot of people doing that way back in the day, back around the time I first joined this forum (over ten years ago now I think!) It doesn't work, at least not long-term.

B5 has weak anti-androgenic properties at high doses. The problem is really high doses of B5 cause other side effects. Stronger anti-androgens could work for you at lower doses.

I cleared on spironolactone which is a prescription anti-androgen. Other people have seen results with saw palmetto, which is a plant that is naturally a high strength anti-androgen.
