Brief Answer:
No issue and no worries dose vary yours is fine

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
The exact dose for pseudo ginseng is not specified and varies for age health and may other i guess twice a week is fine.
It's a natural product and has not that adverse effects to worry about unless you are a woman or have some estrogen issues then it'd a bomb. Other than that some dry mouth ,sleep issues nervousness and nausea vomiting have been reported and facial flushing due to its estrogen like effects.
Some other uses are blood pressure bleeding, tendencies , chest pains, dizziness and sore throat etc.
And last but not the least it is fine to be taken with water.its efficacy does not get compromised this you can take.
Nut shell fine take it as it is and no worries. But concomitantly other natural ways like losing weight niacin , diets low in saturated fats and rich in omega 3 and 9 and alot of dietary precautions should be the key.
I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and don't forget to close the discussion please.
May the odds be ever in your favour.

I am 5 10 , 195 lbs, 24 years old male.... So sunday night I was getting a scratchy throat, but I was not worried, woke up next morning and had a sore throat, went to work it was manageable, asked fellow employees why my throat was only sore on one side. Monday night I started to get cold chills and a fever..Went to bed and woke up next morning with an even worse sore throat on my right side only. I was tired and had body aches, so I thought it was the flu or something, took some pain killers and went to work, Tuesday evening at work I was getting even more cold chills the night before , so I went home early and took a hot bath to warm me up, some tylenol and tried to sleep. Wednesday morning, same routine, right side of throat hurts even worse, where I can barely swallow liquids with out my throat hurting. So I took some thera-flu the prescribed dosage and continue to take it but still no results, but I happened to look in the mirror with a flashlight right next to my right tonsil it looks as if it got infected and there was white stuff stuck in there. I tried to remove it with a q-tip but was unsuccessful, not only did it hurt but it felt as if it was stuck in. Thursday I went to a doctor and she said I have some sort of pharyngitis, pre scribed me some amoxicillin and asked if I have post nasal drip, not that I know of.... But I have been following the directions and still now it is friday woke up pain in my throat on my right side only and I havent any real food since sunday... Am I not giving the amoxicillin enough time, if not if my throat continues to be in pain what s next?

Dear Sir or Madam,
A few months ago, when ejaculating I felt the pain. spem went to a small gel particles which are transparent and orange. After a few days it stopped. Now once again emerged.
Perhaps it is important to say that I had a sore throat and I therefore antibiotics.
With no sign of urgency.
Thank you in advance.

For the past 3 weeks I have had a very persistent sore throat which at times has made it very difficult to swallow. Lemsips and lozengers ease and alcohol makes it worse. Sleeping can be disturbed due to being painful to swallow. The symptoms seem...
