GSE will make you herx. I take when I go to bed but I've been getting a headache back and wonder if it is from the GSE. Its a great supplement to take for lyme though. Just make sure you detoxing. Are you taking magnesium? Magnesium helps me in so many ways but I just read today that it can help headaches.

I take Magnesium .. 2 in the morning and 3 at night cuz mine was so low.... When the LLMD gave me the GSE he said, "I dont expect this to give you a Herx"... RIGHT ..LOL LOL I had a headache for 4 days until I realized it was the GSE so today I didnt take any so I can get rid of the headache... Do you think I should start out with 1 GSE 2x a day and work up to 3 2x a day ????? He wants me to take 3 2x a day ....

Yes, start with the smallest dose you can and slowly work your way up to the full dose.
