Gel Capsule Response
Nov 30, 1998

Hey Doc,

I read the gel cap question and your response to that individual and wanted to let you know that I have been using gel caps for over a month and my viral load actually went down further to 14. I am using Lilly Gelitan Capsules (size OO) ordered from the local Eckerds Drug Store. It takes five full capsules (as full as you can get them) to equal the 1 tsp as prescribed. They must be taken quickly after being made because they will desolve. And trust me they disolve just fine in the stomach. One burp will let you know that right away. It's the only way to go in my opinion; however, I noticed the price doubled from the first box I purchased to the second. Think someone's trying to increase their profits? Hope that helps.
