High dose Vitamin C people-what to do if I'm still at BT from yesterday?

    Had to take 40000 mg throughout the day yesterday to get to bowel tolerance around 7 pm. (my first day of it-prior to that was taking about 6000 mg for 2 months). I was gassy all night and still am, and this morning still having several very loose movements.

    I was planning to go to 75% today, so about 30000 mg, and eventually after a week taper down to maybe 10000 per day.

    Not sure what to do now since things are still moving so much-I don't think I could handle the 30000 mg today! Did anyone else have this issue?

    It is sustained release C (not a C complex) so maybe that's making the difference?

    (I'm hoping the C can get rid of the vertigo I'm getting now that I'm on the lower dose of antivirals.)

    HappyGrace, I thought I read to "not" use the sustained release Vitamin C in one of the earlier threads. Could be wrong but could swear I read that.

    Without going back and looking, I'm pretty sure that I have read this too.

    I may have read that too, but I could not get past 6000 mg on the regular C without getting acid reflux, etc., so I thought I'd try this.

    Shoot, now I'm not sure what to do-I don't feel like the 6000 mg was doing anything and I can't get up past that w/out stomach distress.

    What about Emergen-C. That powder is dissolved in water and contains 1000mg per pkt. Perhaps because it absorbs as a liquid it wouldn't effect you as much?

    Great idea, thanks! I have used it before-not sure how the high doses would affect me though.

    When in Canada I took these guys:

    And in the US

    I also took some timed released ones just because I had them due to the JOH list.

    I take it sometimes more for when I feel a cold coming on (other vitamins in there too). I mix up 2 pkts at a time which is 8-12 oz and it has never impacted me in a negative way.
