I have started taking 200mg of alpha lipoic acid daily for burning mouth. I noticed that after taking the capsule my urine has a bad smell —like skunk or sulfur. My physician has not heard of that side effect and said to increase the dose to 600mg daily because 200mg was not helping with my burning mouth. Has anyone else noticed malodorous urine and does it go away?
I definitely get unpleasant odor from ALA. Always have. I think greater the dosage, the more potent the odor.
Yes, yes, yes, a definite Skunk smell for sure. It's nasty, to say the least. Dosage daily is 600 mg which is accomplished by taking two capsules. Taking this supplement for neuropathy of the feet unrelated to diabetes. I've been taking this since March 30, 2021, and it is not going away yet.
Yes! The same smell as if I have been eating asparagus. Maybe similar nutrients?
Regarding :- Burning Mouth Syndrome.
It is caused by anxiety, for me there was no burning in the morning but gradually increased during the day to include ulcers around the edges of my tongue gums and inside my cheeks, very painful!
anything that increased my anxiety also increased the burning pain, I found that drinking coffee made it worse for me, probably the caffeine in the coffee.
The good news is that it can be cured by curing the anxiety, my treatment consisted of taking a 2mg Diazepam tablet in the morning and sometimes an additional 2mg if burning started during the day and of course avoiding coffee.
