Experience

I would have a break and be sick the first day I stopped taking it. When I returned to take it after the break I’d vomit for the first three days and get terrible headaches. Then I’d feel nauseous almost every day or have some increased smell where I would almost throw up over smells of meat or bread baking.

Experience after taking

Couldn’t wait to stop taking it! My mental state returned to normal I felt like it cleared my vision. I felt less tired and the nausea went away after a week of not taking it .
