I'm thinking of getting the human L-Lysine, because frankly... ouch. Prices for the cat one are astronomical, compared to the human one.

Same stuff?
Dosage?
Has anyone used Human L-Lysine?

I use the human L-Lysine. I bought the NOW brand on amazon.. it was $30 for a 1-lb tub! I believe my research said that its the same dosage/stuff as for pets (I wouldn't have purchased it otherwise). I give 500mg daily, I feel like the tub will last me forever. Here's a link to the same stuff I got.

As far as I know you can use the same dosage as you woukd use with the l-lysine for pets. The vets once told me I could easily use the pet l-lysine for myself:)

Wow... I've been such a fool :)
I can get 1kg (about 2lbs) 100% pure L-Lysine for €15 -- that's $18.
To think I've paid that for a 50g tub!!!

Yeesh...
