I have been taking 30mg Zinc Picolinate With 2mg Copper Pill for the past few months. It helped a little bit. Is it ok if I take maybe 2 pills a day which equals to 60 mg ??

I heard if I take them on a empty stomach its more powerfull but then my stomach hurts for like 15 minutes..

Because I doubt you don't need that much. The RDA is 15 mg. You CAN overdose. Excess zinc doesn't leave your body like water-soluble vitamins do.
