Comment:
After taking 50 mg capsules, 3 times per day for a week, I experienced the headaches in the morning of the 5th and 6th days. Later, on the evening of the 6th day (I had taken my final capsule in the morning), I began to have a fairly strong headache. I also felt very tired, so I went to bed early (for me) around 11 PM.
