How much Lysine, Vit C, Vit B, Zinc, etc?

Recommended Posts

justme53

I was diagnosed with genital HSV1 four days ago and have started a pretty strict diet and vitamin regimen. In addition to my Acyclovir, I'm taking Lysine, Vitamin C + Bioflavonoids, Zinc, and a Vitamin B Complex. The question is, how much of each am I supposed to be taking? During my outbreak, I'm taking 2000mg of Lysine a day (not all at one time, though, does that matter?), and then plan to reduce it when the outbreak goes away (but what do I reduce it to?). Then as far as the other vitamins, I'm just taking 1 tablet of each as that's what's recommended on the bottle. Should I be taking more? I don't know how much is too much but want to make sure it's enough.

Thanks!

as far as lysine goes, the min dose I've read is 1250 which of course is hard since the pills come in 500 mg doses.

Lysine

I've read the same thing...1,250 mg of Lysine a day. I'm taking 2,000 mg a day even when I don't have outbreaks - 1,000 in the morning and 1,000 at night. I also take Acyclovir - I think it's 400 mg 2 times a day.

That's all I'm taking and it seems to be doing the job ;)

Dosage is 1250mg minimal, so 500mg breakfeast, 500mg lunch and split one 500mg tablet for dinner and your there. I just take a 500mg w/each meal to make sure.

For an active OB the dosage should be upped to 2000mg a day...

red marine algea

i just found out i have genital herpes, and rather then take rx drugs (im not a believer in them) ive decided to go the herbal route with lysine and red marine algea. my first outbreak was AWFUL, sooo painful, but it went away after 3 days when i started taking these supplements

      Hey @sheikha and welcome to the website. Different tests around the world have different numbers as to what means positive.  Do you have details of what test was performed? Does the paperwork indicate what number means positive? For some tests it’s 1.1, others 11 and some more than 20!

      What symptoms brought you to test in the first place

      Over 3.3 is a strong positive. You could repeat that test. I'd assume I had it.

      Lysine seemed to dry the blisters during outbreaks.  They would take about the same time to heal but there would be no/less fluid while using lysine.  At first it seemed like it was reducing the amount of outbreaks, but after a couple months they were coming just as often as before - if not more often.

      Just been diagnosed but no symptoms beyond a tingling in my uretha opening. Result via IgG was <3.5 herpes 1 and >3.3 herpes 2..(what does that even mean in terms of advancemen). 4 Drs later - told can be a false positive and another - its a true reading. So im still in the dark. 17 days after first tingle still nothing beyond the tingling. freaking out as not young....my new partner of 7 months has been unfaithful. If i have i’m pretty certain he was aware, came back from overseas acting weird.  Previous partner was 33 years monogamous relationship.  Disclosure- what am I disclosing? Do I or dont I have it.  I wanted to do a PCR but no area to swab!
