Margaret, may ask how much alpha lipoic you had to take to get your peripheral nerve pain under control? Thank you, Johnmacc

So, how much alpha lipoic do you take daily?

The brand I use has 300 mg R-Alpha Lipoic Acid and 300 mg S-Alpha Lipoic Acid = 600 mg er day.
Actually the Dr recommended 800 per day, but I could not find that mg when I started taking it. As it turns out 600 mg has been enough.
Not all of this supplement is the same - I did read up on it first. There are synthetic pills on the market so stay away from those.
As I said I did take it close to 6 weeks when I could feel significant relief. It seems like after 6 months I was virtually pain free. I still take it - the Dr recommended that too.
For me this was a miracle Med. I had been suffering for many years.
I had actually given up on relief - I had serious reactions to Gabapentin - so I will not take that again.
Good luck
