Should Goldenseal be taken daily or periodically, such as 2 weeks on and then 2 weeks off?
Goldenseal can be used in many different ways depending on what someone is using it for, and what advice they have been given by a doctor or health professional concerning the dosage they are instructed to take. It can be used periodically such as for 2 weeks on, then take a break for 2 weeks, then take it again for 2 weeks, and then take another 2-week break, and so on, repeating this cycle as long as you wish (the 2 weeks on, 2 weeks off approach). This is often the approach when someone is taking higher doses based on their doctor or health professional's advice. In other cases, goldenseal can be used daily for months before taking a break, usually at lower doses. It comes down to the person's individual needs and what they are using it for and the advice they are following.
