singer1 HB User safe is it?

Is Lysine safe to take everyday as a prevenative for canker sores or should you just take it when there's a problem?

I only take some when I feel a sore tingle on the corner of my mouth that tells me a cold sore is developing. Taking a couple of lysine over the next 2 days keeps the sore from developing. I don't see why you'd want it more than that.

The one thing I have read is that if you take it regularly, it can raise your cholesterol levels (at least that can be monitoed by blood tests)
