  1. Hey, I am a seventeen year old boy, I have acne, but have that kinda under control, but have such oily skin. Now I have several optitions to reduce my sebum, I list them below: - Pantothenic acid, B5 / oxidises the sebum in the skin - Vitamin D(3) / I really dont know how this reduces sebum - Vitamin A / I also don't know exactly how this can reduce sebum - Accutane / shrinks the oil glands permanently - Saw palmetto, green tea extract (oral) / Lowering androgen levels - Green
  2. OK, I just have to post again. I shared my story on Winged Serpent's page: "Clear after 26 years". But I just want to say this works. After struggling with horrible acne for 20+ years, I am clear! Here's what I am doing. 500 mg sustained release Pantothenic Acid 2x a day 500 mg L-Carnitine once a day with Pantothenic acid ( with a meal) try to reduce sugar intake lots of water Juice DAILY Always sweet potato with someting else like cucumber, celery, beet, etc. I use a mild cleaner -
  3. How B5 works for those who experience problems with acne: Vitamin B5 is great to help the skin with certain problems that may pop up from time to time, such as acne. Basically what the B5 does is create high amounts of Coenzyme-A. People with acne are often lacking in their metabolism of certain types of fats ~ they do not have enough Coenzyme-A in the body. The fats do not break down, and instead get deposited in your sebaceous (oil) glands. The p.acne bacteria feeds off of this sebum, and crea
  4. I've been doing 20ct. 500mg pills a day for the last four weeks (I was doing 10ct 500mg for a month before) and still haven't noticed much of a difference other than getting more acne. I know that it's normal to start breaking out while taking this amount of dosage but it hasn't really helped much (that I can see anyway) or cleared up any faster than normal. I've read that most people start seeing a difference within three-four weeks of taking it, but I haven't. For those that have taken it/
  5. Hey guys I've had acne since I was about 14 (I'm 18 now), after using the trial and error method with multiple different topicals and drugs I have never found anything that works for me, I have been doing the regimen everyday and night for 2 years now and I don't know if this is even working for me because of how my skin is only getting worse? (I'm too scared to stop doing it in-case it gets EVEN worse). As I have really oily skin I came across a few success stories on how Vitamin b5 h
  6. Hi there, Just registered to this site, this is my first post / thread. I want to keep a daily log for anyone interested in trying fish oil (Omega 3) to help clear their skin. I thought I'd give it a go as I never eat fish so perhaps lacking allot of Omega 3. I'm not sure if I qualify for having light acne or if it's just a bad case of spots / pimples. Whatever the case, it's persistent and I hate it. What was my first go at clear skin? B5 - Pantothenic acid - 10G daily.. Done nothing for me
  7. Hey everyone, First off, I apologize if this a repeated topic or in the wrong forum. Basically, since junior high, I've been producing and accumulating way too much sebum on my face (I'm now nearly 20). As anyone who's gone through the same thing, they know it can be an aggrevating experience. I can start the day off with a dry, pale-olive complexion, and then finish the day shiny and rosy. It's horribly uncomfortable, and has drastically affected my social life, my work productivity, and enco
  8. Hello. I am new to the community, although I've been using this website as a resource for a long time now. I started taking B5 (about 6 grams a day) a little over a week ago, and I will be updating my progress on here. Background info.: I'm a 26 year old female who has had acne (somewhat off and on) since age 13. I took a full course of Accutane as a teenager which cleared me for a couple years, and I have been jumping around from treatment to treatment ever since. Recently, my d
  9. My derm prescribed me a low dose of doxy over a period of about 6 months. I also take Vitamin B5, and she said I could continue taking that along with the doxy. Only problem is, the Vitamin B5 contains calcium (it's in the form of d-calcium pantothenate) AND it's also time released. I searched around and couldn't find anything, so I was wondering, is it still ok to take this time released form of B5 with doxy? Does the "timed release" mean that it's constantly releasing calcium into my bloodstre
  10. So I used accutane for all but 3 weeks lol and my face CLEARED AMAZINGLY all acne was gone but the dry lips were too much and I backed out I have been using b5 for about 2 weeks now and im getting a bit of results. But idk if its gonna clear completely and ill always have to take B5 as opposed to accutane one and done hopefully What do you guys think should I start accutane again and keept with the whole course? Or keep the b5? Im about to enter college so Im thinking if I take the accutane NOW
  11. Hello, Im new on here and looking for any insight on this: About 4 years ago I discovered that by taking 4-6 grams of Pantothenic Acid (B5) a day I was able to greatly reduce my acne. In the past 6 months I had a few health problems that I linked to megadosing this vitamin. I started getting panic attacks , anxiety, and dizzy, and ignored those symptoms until I developed a painful condition of gout in my left foot! ouch. After reducing and stopping the Pantothenic Acid the symptoms went away
  12. I am going to start the regimen described below, but I'm considering taking vitamin B complex vitamins with it, so my other B vitamins aren't deficit. Also, 50mg of Zinc, taken once daily. What do you think? Is there a particular brand of multivitamin or B complex you think is better than others?
  13. Sorry, I notice that you seem to get quite a few posts similar to this, but I would appreciate any help you have to offer. The problem is the oil produced by my skin (crazy as its only on my face - I suffer from severely dry skin on my hands and feet and also used to get this on my face when I was young), I'm not so bothered about the acne as it's a lot better than it used to be. I tried every acne treatment I could think of before moving onto megadosing pantothenic acid to try and stop so much
  14. Well this is my first time posting on this site, although I do frequently visit the site for tips. I suffered with acne all throughout highschool but then it subsided for 2-3 years only to come back About a year or so ago was my first major breakout since highschool (age 21) and it was a very depressing time for me (which i believe worsened my condition). I tried many topical solutions as well as many other natural remedies. Nothing worked. I came across several articles about using high doses
  15. hi, Ive been megadosing on B5 for about a week and my face is soo dry and flakey its unreal....should I stop or drop down the dosage?? someone please help me!!!
  16. Read the parts that you are interested to... I have some other post that said that I was clear, but it was the effects of accutane that were still in my system. Some background: 22 years old, half asian, tropical country, really bad skin family, oily (dehydrated) skin, maybe some facial hyperhidrosis, also I have what I call "seborrhoeic dermatitis prone skin" and obviously acne prone skin. My journey: 3 times on accutane: First time cured me during the dosis. 2nd time suspended: severe nose
  17. Hi I suffer from mild to moderate acne and like 99% of people on here feel like I have tried everything. The only thing I haven't yet looked into is the taking of vitamin tablets etc. I have tried to make a short list of the vitamins that seem to be most effective at helping acne, please can you advise me if taking all of the below daily is potentially a good combination for helping fight acne? Vitamin D3 Zinc Vitamin A - not sure if to bother with this one. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) Than
  18. Ive been taking Omega 3,6 and 9 suppliments for a while now. I used to take Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) but stopped when I ran out and couldnt for the life of me find it again. I have since found it again though so will start taking it. Both say that I should only take 1 of each a day. But ive seen posts on here saying that people are either taking a lot more or a higher dosage is needed to be effective. Is this ok? Ive always been one to follow the packet closely. If I was to start taking mo
  19. Hi all! After reading some posts here I decided to buy some vitamins and this evening, with dinner, I took 12 of them! I didn't overdose, I stayed within the recommended dosage by the manufacturer but about 15 minutes after taking them my face suddenly felt like it was on fire. I checked in the mirror and from the chest upwards I was bright red with very blood shot eyes and my arms were red also. Because it's the first time taking vitamins I'm not sure which it could be but if there's anything
  20. Have anyone tried this ebay shop? *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules. * Is it the same as *Moderator edit, URL removed - read the board rules. * ? I noticed it`s cheaper and the pantothenic acid tabs I ordered are circular, not like the tabs on the picture at all... Do anyone know where I can order "quality" B5, preferably 500 or 1000 mg per tab?
  21. I am doing the Pantothenic Acid mega dosing for my skin and was wondering if taking Niacin as well would be too much? Currently, I am taking 10g of PA 4 times a day, Fish Oil tablets 3 times a day and a stress b-complex once a day. I have been doing this for the last 2 weeks, about. Would it be too much to add niacin to the mix or should I just wait until after the 3 months and am on the maintenance dose to add?
  22. Okay I am starting a log because I am lazy when it comes to sticking to a three month plan of using a new acne product. I am 21 years old male and have had acne since I was about 15. I had mild acne fora while then started to become more mild-moderate when I turned 18 or 19. Sadly I am a late bloomer and I tnink my acne will not go away for at least another 1-2 years on its own. Here is my current supps: NOW Pantothenic Acid: 5 500 mg pills X 4 daily. NOW B-100 Complex X 1 a day (between the do
  23. http://www.puritanspride.com go there!!!!!! my mom introduced me to a vitamin company that is extremely cheap, everything on there is literally like 70% cheaper than it is in the stores. i decided to try B5 and was complaining to her about how much it costs since you have to take so much of it at first...well i got a month's worth of B5 for 20 bucks! you can order online or request a catalog, i like the catalog because it explains what all the different supplements do for you in it. i promis
  24. Howdy Everybody! So I've been using the message boards for ages now and never really bothered to register, so I thought I'd give it a go! As for me, I'm 21 year-old male and have had acne for years (just like everyone). I was on Accutane years ago, but it came back again as soon as I finished my course... boy was that a bummer. After the roaccutane my acne would have been moderate... even mild sometimes or non-existent if I was lucky! I spent last summer over in NYC and when I got back home my
