Here's some info. that I found online:

Take 1-3 tablets daily. Start on one tablet and increase if necessary. Take half an hour before meals, or half an hour before bedtime. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose. Take for up to 3 months and then stop for a month and review. Food supplements should not be a substitute for a varied diet.
