The Effects Of Long Term Use Of Lysine
Is there such a thing as a "slow release" lysine supplement? I feel as though perhaps the potential long-term renal issues from too much too quickly.
No, why taking it?: I'm not aware of slow-release lysine; even if it exists there is no evidence it would be safer. Again, there's only 1 report of kidney problems in a woman who took 3000 mg/day for 5 years but no proof lysine caused her problem. Millions have taken lysine safely. Why are you taking it? Keep your dose to 1500 mg/day ; have kidney function checked every 6 months if concerned but it should be safe. ...Read more

It can interact with a number of antibiotics to lethal effect. It could cause severe allergic reactions, (swelling of lips and tongue, or throat closure, difficulty breathing) old people need it more than young. Athletes use it. ...Read more
Lysine for herpes: Its possible lysine supplements may have some effect on reducing herpes outbreaks, although the FDA has nothing to say about that. The thought is lysine blocks a pathway the virus needs to replicate. Since it is an essential amino acid (the body needs it) I don't expect any real side effects... Other than cost! Lysine is found in food- might want to try that--fish, chicken, lentils, milk, beans. ...Read more
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
The side effects of taking daily lysine, like kidney failure and nephritis, how often they occur, what can I do not to suffer this consecuences?
Why lysine?: Good sources of lysine are high-protein foods such as eggs, red meat, lamb, pork, and poultry, soy, beans and peas, cheese and fish such as cod and sardines. There has been a case report of fanconi's syndrome due to long term use of high dose lysine, but no other renal impairment. Not recommended to be taken if you already have renal impairment. Stop taking supplements and eat a healthy diet. ...Read more

Essential amino acid: Lysine is an esential Amino Acid (a building block for proteins) that is not synthesized in animals. We get it from aspartic acid from plants(especially legumes) or our friendly flora (bacteria), eggs, meats, soy, cheese and fish. It is metabolized to get acetyl-coa which is essential for production of energy & acetylcholine. It's been pro-ported for immunodeficiency, anxiety, cancer, incr bp. ...Read more
Yes: Lysine is an essential amino acid with many benefits. Foods like beef, chicken, tuna and salmon contain 2000-4000 mg per serving. Studies where people take 3000 mg/day show no problems. Massive doses may be unsafe in those with kidney or liver disease but yes, more than 2000 mg/day is safe. See http://www.med.nyu.edu/content? ChunkIID=21791 ...Read more
L (levo) lysine...: L (levo) lysine is a natural amino acid, present in greater or lesser amounts in all proteins. Sold as a health supplement, but there are no proved benefits. Sometimes recommended by some non-scientific sources for herpes, but lysine has no benefit in treating or preventing herpes outbreaks. The dose probably doesn't matter much; take whatever the label says. It would be difficult to take enough to be harmful. ...Read more

All of them because:: I was going to say none of them because lysine does not make any antibiotic more dangerous, but the truth is that all antibiotics are dangerous to some degree- they can all cause allergic reactions ; by killing our friendly flora can disrupt our body's ecology. There are of course times when the benefits outweigh the risks, but since all antibiotics are dangerous they should be used with caution. ...Read more
No effect: Lysine is a non-essential Amino Acid and the body can handle it well. The eye takes in what it needs and leaves the rest in the blood stream. No sure why you would over-indulge in lysine but any changes in your eyesight are from some other cause. ...Read more

Hi, i take mirtazipine 30 mg one at night. Is it ok to take feminax with lysine in it during the day?
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.
