    I was told 1000 mg. Also, you probably know this already, but just in case - d-mannose only works on e coli and it is still possible to get an e coli UTI while taking d-mannose.

      My SO takes one 500mg capsule in the morning and one in the evening.

        I also take 1000 mg, once daily in the morning on an empty stomach. It has definitely helped. Unfortunately it?s pretty expensive because I buy the d mannose sourced from birch because of allergies to supplements derived from corn, which d mannose typically is.

          I think DM help me for 3-4 months. When lab confirmed Enterococcus infection Dmanose didn't help.
          2 rounds of antibiotics and still symptoms reoccurring.
          Thing that saved me was double dose of oregano essential oil and lot of organic cranbery juice.
          Looks good so far... no symptoms for last 3 weeks.

            I love d-mannose and have been taking it daily for about 17 years. I take 1400 mg 1 time daily.

            I take mine with my nighttime pills at 9pm... I took it midday for the first few years and haven’t noticed a difference in effectiveness. I have an in-dwelling suprapubic cath and used to have bladder infections 3-4 times a year and now only have to resort to antibiotics for treatment every 4 or 5 years.

            I make sure to drink 3-4 quarts of water every single day though, it makes a big difference.

            If I think I have a bladder infection starting I take a special 3 day course of the d-mannose... day 1 - 1400mg every 2 hours for 7 doses... day 2 - 1400mg every 3 hours for 5 doses... day 3 - 1400mg every 4 hours for 3 doses. Add a little extra water those days and it usually clears it right up.
            This too shall pass...
