Day 1: Take one Metagest HCl tablet at the end of each meal all day long.

Day 2: Take two Metagest HCl tablets at the end of each meal all day long.

Day 3 – Day 7: Continue increasing by one Metagest HCl tablets per day, for each meal, until you feel a warmth in your stomach or until you reach seven Metagest HCl tablets per meal. Do not take more than seven tablets per meal.

NOTE: Drink 8 oz of water with one tablespoon of baking soda if warming is uncomfortable.

IMPORTANT: This test should not be undertaken if there is gastritis or any recent history of gastric ulceration (stomach ulcers).
