Will your loading dose be a total of 2g/kg? If so, two days seems very short to me and I’m not sure I’ve heard of anyone doing it that quickly. Mine was 4 days and many people take 5 days. Many people take 2 days for their 1g/kg maintenance doses. Even at 4 days (so 0.5g/kg/day) I had severe headaches and vomiting with my loading dose. A year later I do not have these problems. I recommend 4 days and caution that if you do two days you may end up taking the subsequent days as sick days anyway. That said, everyone is different and you may be fine. But please consider spreading it out more.
