p.s. i take mine with breakfast everyday. you have to watch what you eat though b/c taking any drug with certain foods can interfere with your body's take-up of the drug. also, certain vitamins and such can interfere with take-up of the drug so you should avoid taking vitamins for 1-2 hours before or after you take this drug.

I have been on this medication about 4 months now. I'm feeling so much better, I have energy that I haven't had in years. Slight headaches at first, but they soon stopped. slight weight loss. Some insomnia lately, but not every day. Over all I'm happy with the results so far.
