Why are you taking vitamin B5, Pantothenic acid. If you are eating a usual diet, you do not deficiency of this vitamin. If a doctor prescribed it, talk to her/him. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs.
