    I have FMS/CFS. I take 75mg. x2 daily. The first two weeks I just felt loopy, but hung in. After that I thought it was a wonder drug. I had more energy, could think more clearly than in years. The honeymoon is over, after taking it about 4 months I'm finding I'm extremely emotional, disoriented and confused. Worse than any fibro-fog I've experienced. I'm weaning off.

    After having back surgery, my doctor presribed this for me! I am very pleased with the results. Took a few days to adjust to some minor side effects. It was Heaven sent to me!
