    Hi Fredd and all,

    Can you please give me some guidelines on how much L-carnitine fumarate to take and when? I could really use some energy and am eager to see if it will help.

    Thanks so much!

    Audrey

    I find 2 of the 500mg tablets gives me some energy. I've taken up to 5 of them in a day. You might want to start with one though. I got a headache the first couple of days until I was used to it. Good luck! I find it helps exercise tolerance to some degree.

    This seems to be helping me too.

    Just not sure of dosing/timing.

    HI Rosebud,

    I started with 125mg and this hit harder for longer than anything else I have taken. After about 9 months I was up to 500mg once a day. I went to 1000 and went back down. More made no difference. I take it 30 minutes or more before food in the morning. Alpha lipoic acid is said to increase the l-carnitine fumarate efficiency by 50% or so.
