Comment:
I am a 77 yr old female who recently had cataract surgery. The opthomologist suggested EPO for Dry eyes ( I can not take Flax seed products.)I have been using EPO capsules, 2300mgs, for a week-too soon to know results but I have had three tia's and one minor stroke and am taking Plavix. Should I be taking EPO?????

Comment:
I started taking EPO for PMS symptoms, mostly irritability. The only difference I have seen is that I now have breast tenderness---this is not documented anywhere that I could find as a side effect, but I do see that another person who reviewed EPO had the same problem.

This has helpd with PMS and pre-menapause symptoms greatly. The mood swings have left the food cravings and the cramps. I am no longer as depressed.My bald spot is growing back due to hormonal changes, and the night sweats and hot flashes are gone unless I eat too much sugar.
