    I have been taking EPO since 1982. I have had no side effects. After the birth of my first child, I had a great deal of depression. Since I started taking EPO, it has gone away. When I stop taking EPO, I can definitely see a difference, in that my depression begins to return.

    I am moving from perimenopause into menopause. So there were mornings I would wake up and my chest was drenched with sweat. Doctor recommended the Evening Primrose Oil, so I started to take them. They are 1,000 mg.s, one in the morning and one in the evening. Works wonderful.

    Comment:
    I had fibrocystic breast disease with symptoms over 8 years. several OB's recommended it and after an endocrinologist also recommended it - I finally tried it. I have been symptom free - Since taking eveing primrose oil, I have been taking no other medicines or treatments for fibrocyctic breast disease. Maybe a coincidence - maybe not.
