Vitamin B5
Hi. I have a problem with Acne and have been advised to take 10grams of Panthothenic Acid a day(B5). But i cant find any products that have such a high dosage of B5, most of them have 20-30mg and I need 10g! Do you know if they keep this dosage in pharmacies and if not, are there any OTC medications you can recommend me? By the way I already have the normal cosmetic cleansers and face creams, Im looking for something stronger like a medication that doesnt require a prescription.
Thanks.

I'll have a look to see if I can find any brand that produces the dosage you're looking for. You may have to try internet shopping...
