For the past few months I've been having 15 drops a day of samento.. divided into two doses... Today I took it all at once.. about 3 hours later, i started to not feel well at all.. i had bad diarrhea as well as feeling pretty out of it and shaking a bit.. could this be from the increased dosage all at once?
Also, has anyone ordered rifampin through medco in the mail? I usually get my meds filled at the pharmacy.. but it was cheaper to go through the mail and i noticed it didnt have the same rifampin written on the capsule.. is this a generic form? affecting me differently?

Cat's Claw in large doses can cause those symptoms. I've read the tannins are responsible. I've made decoctions of up to 8 grams at at time with lemon added to the water to minimize the number of tannins extracted and only had very mild GI discomfort. Kinda supports the assertion it is the tannins responsible, but I've no way of knowing of course without an in-home lab. :-)
