Any lysine options other than horse pills?

Recommended Posts

rocky320

I know I need to be taking 1500 mg lysine daily, but I really can't swallow those ginormous horse pills.

Anyone have any other recommendations? I saw the Vitamin Shoppe has a powder that has 2400 mg per tsp.

When I have the option of opening my throat and tossing down a ginormous (love that word! haha) pill, or tasting something in a drink...I opt for the pill!

The pills actually more frequently come in 500-mg tablets (any drugstore). You could just take more of those instead, I'd imagine they're easier to swallow.

I tried those smaller tablets, but in a way they were worse. It was good how small they are, since you have to take twice the amount its annoying in its own way.

I take a powder... it's by NOW, so it's vegatarian friendly and I order a one pound bottle of it from Amazon for around $10. Taken at the recommended doses to prevent OBs it has over 400 servings. It does have an odd powdery taste. I mix it with a bit of water and down it quickly, then follow with a juice chaser first thing in the morning. That way there's no aftertaste. I've also had success with Carson Labs lysine powder, but the NOW brand is cheaper. Works as well as the pills, and the idea is that more of it is absorbed because sometimes the pills don't break down.

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
