Hey all,

My LLMD said to get GSE and take 2 capsules daily, she didnt tell me what dosage. Does anyone know what I should get? 200mg? Also, is GSE ok to take with S. Bouiilardi (sp?). thank you!

I take 400 2 x daily, maybe start lower then increase ?

Take them away from any probiotics by 2 hours

Yep that's ok😁. I know what you are saying. Soon, from hanging here, you'll be giving her information

It's OK to take with S. Bouiilardi. S. Bouiilardi works differently than other probiotics, so it doesn't need to be spaced out from abx or supplements. And it can be taken with abx. It's basically a cyst buster, so it can definitely cause herxing as well. I would start slowly and work my way up.

My LLMD likes Pure Encapsulations brand, but they are 250 mg pills. That's kind of a big dose, so I would definitely start at one. And you still may Herx on that. If you do, I would ask your LLMD about a tincture. You could start much slower on that, even one drop.

Thanks all. I take Topamax for migranes and you cannot eat grapefruit with topamax, I asked her about this but she didnt know. I asked the pharmacist tonight and he said they should not be taken together. Not a bad reaction, but I should ask the dr. that prescribed me the topamax if it would effect me. I am not really that worried about the interaction because I am not taking the med for seizures which is one of the main reasons you arnt supposed to take topamax and grapefruit together. so I guess ill hold off until I can get ahold of everyone and get a consensus.
