Does anyone know if these two drugs can be taken on an empty stomach or does it require food? Any big interactions with other meds/supplements to look out for? Thanks.

Hey good luck! I'm starting tomorrow too!

I read that we need to take it with Folic Acid.

I’m guessing when Dr.H says folic acid he means folate. Folic acid is a no-no if you have MTHFR, which most of us do.

Best of luck, Rikky. I’m looking forward to hearing how it goes.

Rikky - I don't have any information re: take them with food or empty stomach.

But this will bump.

I don't think we have too many members on this protocol (yet)...and I doubt I'll be on it anytime soon.

Dr. H recommends MTHF ES from xymogen.

What is your dosage for the dapsone?
