lysine question

Recommended Posts

hopenglory

I tried lysine...a 500mg cap...and it gave me the runs like nobody's business. Anyone else have a similar experience? I really want to take it but man...can't function while chained to the toilet.

you sure it was the lysine and not something you ate before hand that finally digested?

i cant recall if they are a hard pill or not, maybe try cutting it in half, or finding a 250mg

hmmm

that has not happened to me either and i eat them like candy when I binge out on junk food. If anything the zinc sometimes has given me a simular effect but only if i over react and take two.

We're all diffent and react differently to different drugs and/or supplements I guess...

I've never heard of that happening; if anything, lysine stops me up a bit. If you stopped after only one pill, I'd give it another try- probably just something you ate or bad nerves?

I have been taking 1500 mgs of lysine every day since April 07 and have had no side effects. If I feel prodome symptoms, I up it to 2000 mgs per day.

Bluefrog, does it work for you? I mean, as well as supressive drug therapy does? I've taken lysine on and off for the past two years, right now I'm taking 2000 mg a day because I'm getting annoyed with these damn OBs.

Ugh, so it's frustrating because for everything I try (lysine for example), I also manage to mess up its chances of helping by not getting enough sleep, not eating right, or going on a crazy partying spree. Grrrr...

Did you take it with food or after eating?

I read on the label that you're supposed to take it in between meals or on an empty stomach which i follow.

I take lysine 1000mg in the morning before food with water, when had an OB, take another 1000mg in early afternoon 2pm two hours after lunch with water. No side effects. May want to check other food you are eating to cause the run?

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
