Maureene...I didn't notice this post. I take 2000mg a day (2 in the morning and 2 at lunch). I thought 6 pills was a lot so I thought somewhere in between was ok :)

There was a study done on women who were "poor responders" to fertility drugs who took l-arginine and they were on 16 grams (16,000 mg or 16 pills a day at least). I take around 2,000 daily, but only because it can get expensive for the better brands.
