This product is helping my daughter quite a lot.  What is the maximum amount she can safely take?  She is on quite a few prescription drugs, and if this could help reduce her need for some of them, it would be great!

It depends on how deficient in acetylcholine your daughter is (and we are all a bit different, of course). When I first started it, I needed seven doses a day for a couple of days—but please understand that I was a severe case. At that point, I was having trouble staying awake even three hours a day, and my gastroparesis was awful. I could actually feel the fatigue creep back in when I needed another dose. Gads. I know of one person who cannot seem to go below 5 capsules/day without her gastroparesis returning, but *most* folks I hear from do fine with 2-3 capsules in the morning. If your daughter takes too much, she’ll likely notice that her heart rate will slow and her eyes and mouth will start to water. I hope she is feeling much better now! smile
