    Took it for four days. Horrible. I was angry and agitated and my depression worsened. I cried uncontrollably and felt suicidal. Discontinued.

    Been taking this for over a month now and it's the ONLY thing that's ever helped! I've tried countless others in the last 25 years with no help. BUT... it's causing bloating & horrid gas. Does this ever stop? It's really gross & embarrassing.
