    I don't think that's normal. I took colloidal silver a few years ago for recurrent strep throat, and it made me very very tired for about 4 days, I'm sure I was herxing and the sore throat finally went and I felt better.

    Why are you taking the colloidal silver? I think you have to be careful taking it regularly because, like antibiotics, it can kill good bacteria as well as bad. It can contribute to a yeast infection, although paradoxically it can also help kill yeast.

    So it might be making you tired from killing good bacteria in your system. Antibiotics do that to me, make me very tired.

    If I were you, I'd stop taking it and add a good probiotic and see how you do.

    It is very effective at killing pathogens, but I don't think you should take it for weeks and weeks.

    Take care-
