* *ADVISORY* *Betaine is contraindicated in patients taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (e.g., ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac, and many others), and steroids. Concurrent use of these medications along with betaine may compromise the integrity of the stomach lining and cause ulcers and other potentially life-threatening complications.
DOSAGE:Each tablet of betaine generally contains about 650 mg. Dosing ranges between approximately 3000 to 5000 grams, corresponding to 4-7 tablets/meal, and should be titrated up slowly depending on symptoms and side effects. This supplement should be taken only under the supervision of a qualified medical professional.
CONCLUSION: If you elect to try Buetaine HCI, remember to include it in your list of medications when you visit your doctor and other health care providers.
