I'm sleeping fine with 2 or 3 capsules a day. Sometimes I forget to take a third one. Really seems to be helping, and I am gently losing again!!

Question for all of you: Do you think it takes time for the Ptero to build up and start working? I started taking one capsule (50mg) on DDs last week and noticed no difference in any way. I did not take any over the weekend as we were away and I forgot to bring it with me.

Monday was a DD and I took one in the morning, one in the afternoon. Still did not notice anything.

Do you think it would be better if I took it every day instead of every other day so it could build up in my system?

Thanks Yam-Yam!! On your question below, I do think it builds up. I didn't notice any difference at first, but after a week of taking it, I did. Give it a try and see.

I started taking it only on DD's. Did not notice any difference. Now that I am taking it daily I do see a difference.

Thanks Beverly and Adi.

Are you both taking just 2 50mg per day or 3? I think I read that Lou or someone was taking 3 per day.

I've taken 2 so far today. I'll start taking it every day. Gonna have to order another bottle so I don't run out too fast.

Hi YamYam,

I tried two a day, but I suffered with a slight headache, so I went back down to one. I didn't notice that it made a difference until I quit taking them for a trial and immediately, I had hunger pangs once again. It is subtle, in that all of a sudden you realize, not only am I not hungry, but I also have loads of energy.

I am taking two. At first two gave me an awful headache, but I think I have now acclimated to it. Three is too much and affects my sleep.

Sunday: Good info for me to think about. I'm going to take 2 or 3 per day for a week and see what happens.

Beverly: Too bad about the headaches, though. Maybe since I started slowly with one every other day I won't have to worry about headaches.

I'm feeling pretty good right now. I took one this morning. Then I had SF hot chocolate with 1 TBLSP EVCO. Then I took another one around lunch time. I just ate a one ounce chicken tender from the fridge. I'm not overly hungry, so doing good.

Would love some energy right now, though. I'm going to take another one mid afternoon and see if hitting the 3 pills mark will perk me up.

I take just 1 50mg. On the weekdays I take it at 5:30am. On the weekend, when I wake up. I don't think I need 2... or... 3 for that matter. I have loads of energy these days and hunger is rare and if it does pop up passes. I take it on UDs and DDs. I think it's been about a month. I would have to check. I still take Resveratrol too.

I take 2 on a DD and one on an UD. The first time I took it I also got a raging headache but I also took my krill oil. If I take the ptero by itsself - no headache. That is until this afternoon. Took my second and instant raging headache but the weather is changing so it could be a coincidence. I have more energy for sure but I don't want to take a third one either day.

Now that is interesting! How many mgs are your Resveratrol capsules? How many of those do you take each day? Do you take both together? If not, when? Do you take the Rez with food?

Sorry for all the questions. But I sure appreciate the answers. I'm learning here. I really want something that will help me get the scale to start moving again. I am so stuck right now.

I take the resveratrol diet from netrition. The bottle says take 2. I take the 2 of those at 5:30am with the 50mg pterostilbene and some prescription meds. On an empty stomach. If it's an UD I may eat breakfast at about 7am, but if it's a DD I don't eat till my bed time snack at about 9:30pm. it works for me...

Carly, Have you noticed any difference since taking both? Just curious. I just ordered and received ptero w/ trans-resv and would love to know if anyone who is taking both notice anything. You are rocking the weight losses!!!

Since I still have my headache this morning from yesterday so it is not related to the ptero but to the pressure changes. I haven't taken the ptero yet but will as soon as I get up from the computer.

I was always taking the resveratrol (for about 2 months prior) and just added the pterostilbene. I felt a difference when I added the ptero.

I just received my pterostilbene in the mail today. Does anyone know if it interacts with blood pressure meds? I'm afraid to take my first dose without knowing.

Please respond, if you know the answer to my question. Thanks ladies.

I use a lot of their products, but I am using the Jarrow brand.

I take pterostilbene, but not blood pressure meds. I do know my BP doesn't go up after I take it though. I hope someone else has the answer and good you are checking!

I have no clue. One issue I don't have is HTN for this I'm grateful, but unable to help. I take loads of other medications and no obvious side effects. I've taken it every day for last 2 mos.

You should call or e-mail the manufacturer, or ask your doctor or pharmacist.
Even if someone here does know, we can't give you medical advice.

Did you try Googling pterostilbene + blood pressure medication?

There may not be much info on contraindications for ptero...asking about/Googling "resveratrol" or "antioxidants" + bp meds may be your next best bet.

Good luck!

I found several articles about ptero lowering bp, but none about whether it interacts/interferes with bp meds. I just took a quick glance, though, because I had to go do some errands. I hope you got some answers!

Just want to drop in and say I still take Ptero & resv and do not hunger ever. When I say "no hunger'. I mean I have nothing. I have finally reached the point that if I eat, I do so when I do not have hunger.

Just wanted to update this. I ordered the Life Extension brand and am happy with it. I like how small it is. I take so much medication I like it when I can swallow something small for a change.

I wanted to start taking this product because I wanted to try dropping my DD calories a little lower to see if I'd get even better breathing results. I was going on a short trip and knew I'd be exposed to a lot of asthma triggers. It really does seem to help with the hunger on DD's. And JUDDD is continuing to help my breathing issues better than anything I have ever tried.
