  2. OK - I'm currently taking a variety of different supplements: flaxseed (linseed) oil capsules, the Boots burdock root tablets and occasionally a zinc and/or fish/cod liver oil supplement also. Just wondering if taking them together at the same time, or around the same time would affect how well they work, or if they could possibly interact with each other? Or would it be 'safe' to continue as I am doing and just take the whole lot at once ('with food', as recommended on the label). Thanks.
  3. OK, thanks. ) I've been taking this dosage since Friday, and will keep going on it. By the way, how long did it take for you to see improvements on this (also considering the effect B5 was having)?
  4. OK - got my shipment of these through today...1000mg capsules. Just wanted to ask - you said you took two everytime you took your B5 and then four before you went to bed - I take my B5 in four doses daily (not sure if you do the same?), so do you mean I need to take 12 a day (2x4 for the B5, plus the bedtime dose)? Just wondering if there's a risk of overdosing on these, or any nasty side effects - the label says only to take 2 a day (one capsule, twice a day). Thanks for your help.
  5. Will give this a go I think, thanks. Holland & Barrett have a 50%-off deal on Flaxseed Oil at the moment, so it has to be worth a try.
  6. Could you tell me where you were buying your B5 from, please? I'm still toying with the idea of changing brands and starting again if things continue to look bad after a while without the salicylic acid wash. )
  7. Thanks for the reply. ) Um, there's not really much different at all, as I say it's the manufacturer, same everything really. But: The ingredients for both are as follows: - Panthothenic Acid (Calcium Panthothenate) - Microcrystaline Cellulose - Magnesium Stearate However, the new batch I have also has Dicalcium Phosphate contained in it. I'm not sure if this extra ingredient could/would have any difference? Also, the new capsules are 500mg, the ones in the first pack that I was taking pre
  8. I'm still reading. My update, then: My acne is terrible, again. Seriously. It's as bad as it's been over the past few years, and certainly a lot worse than any other point since I've been on B5, which is now four months on 10g/day. It's not just a random breakout either, it's a definite shift in the state of my skin. I'm not really sure what happened. Things were steadily improving, not by as much as I'd hoped for, but month-by-month there was a definite improvement. Then I had to re-stock my
  9. Give it time. You'll probably break out from B5 a fair bit during the course of taking 10g a day, but I'm now in my fourth month and my skin has been gradually getting clearer month by month. Best of luck to you.
  10. OK - just got another batch of *slightly different* B5 (same manufacturer though) delivered to me yesterday, but, looking at the ingredients, it's slightly different to the one I was taking previously. The ingredients for both are as follows: - Panthothenic Acid (Calcium Panthothenate) - Microcrystaline Cellulose - Magnesium Stearate However, the new batch I have also has Dicalcium Phosphate contained in it. Does anybody know why this is in this batch and not in the last, and more important
  11. 1. I'm not sure it matters. I generally take mine somewhere around mealtime, but either before or after, doesn't seem to matter. Some people get an upset stomach if they take it on an empty stomach and don't eat for a while afterwards, but I can't say I have had this. 2. One biotin 1000ug capsule with every dose of B5 (10g) that you take throughout the day. One B5 Complex 100 daily. 3. Yes, but I wouldn't have thought there's much point. I tried Erythromycin and it did nothing for my acne, and
  12. I'm still checking this thread all the time. Keep meaning to give you an update on how I'm doing, but got a feeling I'll be here for a while typing, so will do it sometime over the next few days when I have a bit more time. Like CJB said, this thread has inspired and encouraged me a lot, so I'm going to keep reading it whatever.
  13. OK cool, thanks for all the help everyone. I've gone for the Biore option for now, worth testing I guess - it's the "Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser" - is this the same one that you meant, sarahulett and Dee? Fingers crossed I get some good results from it.
