Hi Maxine Welcome to the forum!
I’m on my 4th day of the full dosage, I’ll be taking today’s 1st tablet soon with some…hmm, let’s call it brunch, considering the time!
So far I’ve not had any bad problems, fingers crossed it remains that way. I’m getting more episodes of flushing now I’m on the higher dose, and not necessarily an hour or 2 after taking the tablet, like you’d expect. For example, right now my feet are feeling warm in the Tec fashion, because it’s not normal heat at all, is it. Having just whipped my socks off to check there’s no pinkness, just that heat without getting hot, and mild prickling.
I was quite nervous about whether the higher dose would give me problems, so the first morning I had granola, then the tablet, then a piece of wholemeal toast with peanut butter. I can’t remember what I had on Thursday Yesterday I had a piece of toast with half an avocado spread on it, and 2 small eggs scrambled on top.Today I’m going to have just a bowl of granola. I have just under a teacupful, then add seeds and nuts and dried and/or fresh fruit to it. It’s a hearty bowl of food, and that’s worked for me so far.
I don’t eat a lot of cheese or fried food. I mean I fry stuff, but it’s veggies in olive oil, not chips, you know? I took my 2nd tablet yesterday with a big bowl of homemade vegetable soup with no issues. It sounds like side effects are hitting you pretty hard, maybe if you ate as I do you’d have problems What kind of meals are you having to have to offset the problems?
