    Started taking 4000mg per day a month ago and have had increased abdomenal pain since. Just got lab work done which indicates mild intestinal bleeding. And I got a cold sore last week! Be careful with L-Lysine

    I’m a 25 year old woman who regrets not taking Lysine sooner! It’s a miracle supplement. I used to get cold sores every 6 weeks it seemed like.... I started taking one Lysine pill a day and I haven’t had a cold sore in over a year!! I highly recommend Lysine. I’m so much more confident.

    Been taking for over 2 years and no cold sores. I take one a day as a preventative. This is my wonder drug as nothing else worked including a prescription drug.

    I take these tablets at the first sign of pain or other evidence that a cold sore may be forming. If taken prior to the formation of the sore, L-Lysine prevents the formation of a sore. If taken after a sore has formed it makes the sore heal more quickly.

    I hope I'm not jinxing myself, but I haven't had a cold sore outbreak in years since I started taking lysine on a daily basis. The couple of times I felt like I might be getting one, I increased my dosage and the feeling went away.
