I've suffered from debilitating acne for the last 14 years. I've been on every OTC and prescription medication in the books, including three rounds of Accutane. After suffering hair trauma earlier this year, I discovered MSM. I initially started taking it for hair growth, but soon noticed a 100% clearance in my skin. I cried the day I was complimented four times by complete strangers on the beauty of my skin.
I was taking a relatively low dose, 500mg every other day to every three days. I noticed I was fatigued and weak, but my skin was clear so I didn't care. Then one day, out of nowhere, I fainted face first in public. Not only was it mortifying, it was physically draining, too. I never fainted in my life. It took four days to get my energy back. I stopped msm immediately and now, three weeks later, I'm only starting to come back into it.
This supplement had such promise, but as a teacher of small children, I simply cannot allow myself to be fainting in exchange for clear skin.
