I'm not prego, I guess that is a benefit. Other than that, I have been on it for less than 2 months and have had anxiety attacks and mind you I am not one to have them EVER. I have been beyond fatigued and NO motivation at all. Chest pains, swelling of the ankles and higher blood pressure. I stopped them 2 days ago and still experiencing the anxiety.
