Do not take disomin for more than three months without medical supervision.

Do not take diosmin if:
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.

Dosing considerations for Diosmin.

Diosmin is often taken in combination with hesperidin.

The following doses have been studied in scientific research:

BY MOUTH:
  • For the treatment of internal hemorrhoids: 1350 mg of diosmin plus 150 mg of hesperidin twice daily for 4 days followed by 900 mg of diosmin and 100 mg of hesperidin twice daily for 3 days. Some researchers also try 600 mg of diosmin three times daily for 4 days, followed by 300 mg twice daily for 10 days, in combination with 11 grams of psyllium daily. However, this lower diosmin dose does not seem to be as effective.
  • For prevention of relapse internal hemorrhoids: 450 mg of diosmin plus 50 mg of hesperidin twice daily for 3 months of therapy.
  • For the treatment of leg wounds due to bloodflow problems (venous stasis ulcers): the combination of 900 mg of diosmin and 100 mg of hesperidin daily has been used for up to 2 months.
