for adults at least 15 years of age (for those under 15 years of age, consult your doctor): Briefly shake bottle before using. Place 12 drops under your tongue daily, preferably early in the day, or as directed by a health professional. You might get the full benefit from a smaller dose, so you might try 6 or less drops. Squeeze the dropper very gently, just enough to get the drops. If it is difficult to count the drops in your mouth, try putting the drops in a spoon first. Notice that 12 drops is about 40% of the dropper height, so you can use this estimate instead of counting drops precisely. Drops can be taken all at the same time or throughout the day, preferably at least 6 hours prior to bedtime. Leave the drops in your mouth for 30-60 seconds before swallowing. Do not eat or drink 15 minutes before or after use. For children 14 years of age and younger, ask your doctor. The full dose might be too much for some people; if this is the case, take less. See dose adjustment section below.
Keep out of reach of children. Do not take with steroids or immunosuppressive agents, which will inhibit the effects. OTC preparations such as aspirin, acetaminophen or others for aches and pains are not likely to decrease the benefits. Do not use if pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not use if you have had an organ transplant. Do not take if you have an autoimmune condition without professional consultation. (There is no study data on this; it is a conceptual concern. Some people have reported significant benefit even though they have autoimmune conditions.) Do not use if tamper-evident seal is broken or missing. Not intended for use as a substitute for sleep. Follow the instructions concerning dose reduction (below) if you have any new symptoms or increase in symptoms. This product should not be used as a substitute for treatments prescribed by your physician.
