Comment:
I was taking 50,000 units twice a week for 5 months. I am now taking 50,000 units once a week pluse 1000 units daily. My level has come from 12 to 41 at the 5 month point. My only complaint is that it makes my mouth sore for about 3 days after taking it. A little better since I am not on the higher doses.
