    Supplement to get rid of acne from DHEA


    Currently taking DHEA H.R.T. because of low DHEA levels due to prescription prednisone use. Been on it for about 2 weeks and beginning to get a bit of acne. Anyway to get rid of this? I don't want to take B5 since you have to take like 20 pills per day and it becomes expensive after a while. Have taken SNS inhibit P and it seemed to work. Any other suggestions? Also taking DIM along with it.
    No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training...what a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.

    Pantothenic Acid (B-5) (250 caps/500 mg)
    Take 10/d (5000mg) for 5 days = 50 capsules
    Take 4/day (2000mg) there after for 50 days = 200 capsules
    That's 55 days (nearly 2 months) for $13
    Even if you bought two bottles to double dose what I outlined (which is not required IMHO) that would be nearly 2 month for $26.

    That's cheap!

    I agree. I recommend the same and that he get it from NutraPlanet but they do not stock it anymore. None the less what I did refer him to at NutraPlanet is still pretty decent priced.

    I prefer to refer to NutaPlanet or not at all

    Will your insurance cover any topicals?Bacitracen and clindamyacin combine great with tretinoin.

    I tried B5, took 10 pills twice per day for 2 weeks and while it seemed to help slightly, it was just so many pills that's why I'm hesitant in doing it again.... I actually just gave in and bought Jarrow formulas 500mg, 3 pack of 100 capsules for $13.50 off of Amazon so ill see what I can do with that

    Ive heard good things about Top secret nutrition InterDerm i dont think nutra sell it though.
    Vitamin b5 5-10 grams a day for a week or 2 then lower it.
    Nizoral shampoo but the 2% dried my skin out way to much

    I would say after 10 weeks you might want to cycle off for a month or so but honestly i dont think you need to if you find a low enough dose that still works.

    Ive always had bad acne, and when i cycle i take cycle assist by CEL and my acne actually gets better on cycle with it. It does a lot of other stuff too though so you might be paying for stuff you dont need. Could look into it though

    if the localized effort doesn't work, and you have breakouts all over, i'd give tetracycline a shot...its great for acne/pimples, probably the best when compared to clindamycin/erythromycin

    sometimes only systemic approach works

    calcium pantothenate a calcium salt of the dextrorotatory isomer of the B vitamin pantothenic acid; used as a nutritional supplement. It is also available as racemic calcium pantothenate, which is a mixture of the dextrorotatory and levorotatory isomeric forms.

    It too is OOS at NutraPlanet.

    It took a long time to kick in but it works well. Only sides are dandruff at high doses. Nutra does its own brand?
