I have only been on this for a couple days but I have already started to have stomach pain and it seems like there is not enough sleep in the world that could cure my kind of tired. I don't have hyperactivity and I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not because I actually have chronic fatigue syndrome but it has never been like this before. I used to be able to keep myself going wit ... Show Full Comment
