Various doses of nettle have been used in clinical trials; however, none have been proven effective. For benign prostatic hyperplasia (enlarged prostate), 1-2 capsules of Bazoton® containing 300 milligrams extract of Radix urticae (ERU) has been taken twice daily for up to six months. Bazoton® Liquidum has also been studied in doses of 3 milliliters twice daily for three months. For allergic rhinitis, 600 milligrams freeze-dried nettle at the onset of symptoms for one week has been used. As an extract, nettle has traditionally been given in doses of 30-150 drops daily for six months.
