    Taking 500 mg. for 7 days. Every day my side effects multiplied and worsened. Very weak, dizzy No appetite which may have led to lost of 7 pounds in 7 days. At day 4, my stomach extremely upset. Felt on fire. At day 5 my heart had periods of extreme pounding. So scared. Emotional, slept a lot. I WILL NEVER TAKE THIS AGAIN.
