I am on andrographis and have a sensitive stomach ( am also sick of the side effects of ABX ) .
I started out with two andrographis capsules a day ( standardized from Planetary Formulas ) . The first few days were rough. I have been about ten days and had my first decent day today - the herx symptoms did not lay me out flat . I have increased my dosage to four capsules a day .
I want to get used to the andro before adding resveratrol ( knotweed) .
I also take the herbs with meals as I fear having nausea if taken on an empty stomach . ABX taken on an empty stomach made me queasy . Others here take the herbs with food .
I am encouraged by the reports I have read about with this approach and with rife. It is a blessing to have some options other than ABX . I have read so many posts written by people on ABX for years who are still relapsing , so I hope a multi faceted approach will have some success .
