We can say that there is no standard dose of D-Mannose that can be established a priori.
In fact, it depends on the subjective needs of each person (bacterial load, triggers, need for prevention/maintenance, etc.) and is conditioned by risk factors that in turn depend on events, situations and contexts that tend to vary significantly from one day to another.
In a first phase of use and to ensure an optimal prevention, it is possible to indicate an approximate amount of 3 grams per day (and more precisely divided into 3 intakes of one gram each to ensure a complete coverage of 24 hours, a constant presence of active principle in the bladder), naturally associated with the other measures that must be implemented to fully address the problem (for example, Ausilium Cream + D-Mannoro in case of postcoital cystitis, probiotics in case of dysbiosis, Cistiquer + Ausilium Forte + Dimannart in case of bladder inflammation, etc.).
Subsequently, observing the evolution of the symptoms, the dosage can be “adjusted” and made ad hoc: the amount can be reduced a little on the days when we do not have a particular discomfort and increased again if the symptoms reappear. The advantage of D-Mannose also lies in its flexibility.
We can go up to 6 daily doses if necessary (in case of an acute episode for example or a very high bacterial load). It can also be used for long periods, it has no side effects, it does not interfere with any type of drug, it does not give risk of overdose. It can be used during pregnancy and lactation, by celiacs and people with diabetes (we are talking here about Ausilium 20 Plus and Ausilium Forte in particular).
However, we remember that it is essential to take it, after the attack phase (possibly with Ausilium NAC), for a minimum period of at least another 4-6 weeks to stabilize the improvements and ensure the minimum chances of relapse in acute episodes.
