I was wondering if you have to space out cryptolepis when taking probiotics. I just realized I’ve been taking it within an hour of my probiotic and I’m not sure if it kills the good bacteria. Also, I just started cryptolepis a few weeks ago and I’m up to one and a half teaspoons daily, working up to three teaspoons daily as that’s the dose my doctor said to take. Is this the typical dosage – is it okay to take this amount?
No, you don’t have to space them out. That is a good amount to take for difficult to treat infections. I usually don’t recommend it that high for longer than 90 days. The herb is very safe and people in Africa take it long term, in lower doses, for years.
