Dosage Instructions for Maximum Benefit & Relief
TheraLife Eye Enhanced
(Follow this routine for at least 2 weeks, up to 3 months if needed.)
Start intensive treatment with TheraLife Eye Enhanced by taking 8 capsules a day until tear film stability is established and your eyes feel comfortable. This may take up to 3 months for severe chronic dry eyes, especially ocular rosacea, watery dry eyes, and meibomian gland dysfunction. Reducing dosage too quickly will cause dry eye symptoms to return, requiring you to start all over again.
2nd & 3rd Months Dosage
Continue treatment by taking 6 capsules of TheraLife Eye Enhanced per day until the amount remaining from your 3 month-supply is exhausted.
Sustain relief with Theralife Eye Enhanced. Most patients find the lowest effective dosage is 1 to 4 capsules daily. Take capsules with food or after eating. Drink plenty of water.
Additional Dosage Notes
Theralife® recommends an initial dosage of 8 capsules per day for the first week of treatment, followed by successive decreases in dosage levels as treatment continues (see Dosage Instructions above). This regimen works well for most people with mild to moderate dry eyes who are generally in good health. For those with severe chronic dry eyes, the initial dosage of 8 capsules per day may have to be extended beyond the first week, especially for patients with auto-immune diseases such as Sjorgren’s Syndrome.
A question that often arises is: How many capsules should be taken once dry eye symptoms are alleviated or normal tear secretion is established? The appropriate maintenance dosage for you will depend on many physiological and environmental factors such as: age, medical conditions and medications, exercise level, weather, hormonal balance, and others. The typical maintenance dosage for patients with mild to moderate dry eye is 2 capsules per day. For more severe dry eye sufferers, 4 capsules per day is more typical. However, the dosage can be adjusted to meet your specific dry eye needs and to accomodate changes to your physiology and the environment.
Dry eye conditions may flare up or become more severe from time to time, due to the factors discussed earlier. To help with the discomfort caused by these flare ups, Theralife® recommends taking additional capsules prior to and during travel on airplanes, active outdoor sports activities, sudden humidity changes (especially due to altitude changes), and other seasonal changes. Wearing wrap-around sun glasses is also highly recommend for outdoor activities to protect your eyes from sun and wind.
In short, you can always take additional capsules of Theralife® Eye Enhanced when dry eye symptoms flare up or when you know that you will be encountering conditions which may aggravate your dry eye symptoms.
