Is L Lysine Safe To Take While Nursing
Is it safe to take l-lysine while nursing? I've had been fighting coldsores for 6wks and I have a 7w.o baby. Using abreva. Ice makes it worse.
Lysine and nursing: Lysine is an essential amino acid (protein) meaning our body cannot make it. It is part of our diet.We eat 60, 000 mg protein a day. For prophylaxis usually one takes 500-1000 mg a day and for an acute flare I have seen 1500 to 3000 mg/day given for 2-5 days. It may at very high doses interact with arginine another amino acid (but we have to have both in our diet, anyway). Discuss with doc ...Read more
Probably- moderation: As is usually the case, no research has been done so no one knows for sure. However, lysine occurs naturally in many foods so every woman who has ever been pregnant has consumed lysine in their diet. Thus, it is certainly safe in moderation. The only possible concern is high doses may lower levels of arginine, another amino acid. Doses up to 1500 mg/day are probably safe. ...Read more
Is it safe to take vitamin c 1000mg, biotin 5000 mcg, L-lysine 1000mg, super b-complex, vitamin A 8000 iu, iron 65 mg, & zinc 50 mg all at the sametim?
Does not matter: I would not take ANY of these. Some are harmful. All are useless in the absence of specific indications. If you have medical problems, see your DR. If you have no symptoms, realize that the purveyors of all these are making a sucker out of you. ...Read more
Is it safe to take glucosamine, chondroitin, msm, vitamin d, calcium citrate, multivitamin, l arginine, l lysine, l ornthinine, Prilosec together?
Should be fine:
I don't see any significant problems taking all of these supplements. If you have any side effects, however, it may be a challenge to know which is the culprit. Typically, side effects from these are minimal or not existent.
If you are taking the prilosec due to the others causing GI complaints, you may want to reconsider this strategy. ...Read more

Wise to ask to be sure.
L-Lysine is a very benign substance, an amino acid that we get in our diet every day. It's not known to interact with pharmaceuticals except one type- aminoglycoside antibiotics like gentamycin.
But it's perfectly safe to take Lysine with Amoxicillin.
It's also wise to take probiotics, esp. Sacchromyces boulardii.

No good research.: Moderate use is likely alright.Get a more detailed answer ›
Is it reasonable to take L-lysine capsules daily (about 1500mg) to prevent latent herpese viruses? Any side-effects should I be aware of?
Yes, but it's not: Necessarily effective. L-lysine may decrease the number & duration of HSV I (cold) sore outbreaks, but not necessarily HSV II (genital herpes). l-lysine can increase the amount of calcium your body absorbs. While food (like dairy) isn't a problem, a healthy young guy like you shouldn't take calcium supplements at the same time. This includes calcium-containing antacids. ...Read more

Category C: That Amino Acid is category c meaning it should only be taken if the benefits outweigh the risks. The only potential use I can think as to why you might want to take this is for herpes prevention. I would use safe, approved herpes medications like Valtrex (valacyclovir) or Acyclovir before using unproven herbal remedies in the early first trimester of pregnancy. ...Read more
Increasing HGH with l-lysine, l-arginine, gaba, melatonin. Can I take 3000mg lysine, 3000mg arginine, 5mg melatonin, 3000mg GABA in every night daily?
Why are you doing: This. It is unlikely to do anything to increase your height and may have side effects you wish you did not have. I hope my endocrinology colleagues will weigh in on this one and lay it out straight. You are not going to grow, but your wallet will get thinner. Best wishes. ...Read more
Do L-lysine tablets work for fever blisters. I have used them and they worked for me and a few of my friends. You need to take up to 12 in a day but?
Not herpes: In your message after my rearlier reply, you said your fever blisters clear within a day of taking lysine. That means it wasn't a fever blister (oral herpes). Once a vesicle (blister) appears, no HSV outbreak can heal so fast. Effective treatment (e.g. valacyclovir) shortens average duration from 10 days to 7. Search online for photos of typical oral herpes. Lysine doesn't work for true herpes. ...Read more
Can I take vit c, glutathione at 7.20am, medication (antibiotic, nocolut, painkillers) 11.20am, biotin, l-lysine 3.20pm n same medication at 8.20pm?
There are a number: Of unanswered questions here but I will go ahead and make a couple of comments. I don't think the timing of when to take your supplements is an issue. It would be unusual to have an antibiotic and painkillers that are only dosed twice a day, and if they were, they should be close to 12 hours apart. Nocolut, a progesterone, would only be once a day. Prescribing doctor (s) can clarify. Good wishes:) ...Read more

It crosses the placenta and is found in breast milk. It is sometimes taken to prevent recurrent herpes infections. Talk with you doctor about the dose that can be taken during pregnancy. Essentially, though, it is safe to take in normal doses. ...Read more
