I started with olive leaf capsules two per day at one sitting. within an hour or two my throat starts getting sore. Another hour and I can barely talk. Feels exactly like when I had strep and really painful. Not swollen to where I cannot breathe but painfully sore. Also nitemares, sore ears. Don't know if it's herx or allergic reaction. How have you reacted to olive leaf. I had to get the capsules as I am travelling and they did not have the extract

I am taking 2-3 a day and don't feel much at all. I don't think it is doing much for me. Garlic on the other hand has given me a fight and I continue to up the dosage.
I am up to 3000MG/day and 3 cloves per day.

It may be best to back down to ONE a day for the first few days. Taking with meals may be helpful, at first.
OLE can produce a herx, starting at a low dose is important. Be sure to drink LOTS of water throughout the day. Yes, you'll have more pit stops but LOTS of water is key.

If you think this might be strep, I hope you can get to clinic to do a throat swab test.
