I am planning on starting taking EPO at 36 weeks. I have never taken it before. My midwife said what she recommends is taking 4 pills a day the first week, 3 pills a day the second week, 2 pills a day the third week and then one a day until delivery. I didn't ask her why she uses that method but I plan to at our appointment this week.

For those of you that have taken it, how much did you take? Did it change as the weeks went by? I would have assumed that you would increase the amount you were taking as you got closer to your due date, but what do I know!!

You know, I don't think my midwife ever even specified a dosage, so I was only taking one a day. No wonder it didn't do much, huh?

Oh well, live and learn...

my mw told me to take 3 pills 3x/day orally or 3 pills vaginally before bed. but i guess it all depends on the doseages of your pills?
