This pill is HORRIBLE!!!I had to work both jobs that day so i figured I would give it a try. I did not feel any energy and about 3 hours later.. I had a horrible migrane & was sick to my stomach. I ended up not working that day and laid in bed sick. I could not sleep that night either. Took me about 24 hours to recover. Do not take!
