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?

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
