Dosage: 40 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Take the pill with tums. Bring water with you because it calms the nausea. This will cut back on the heart burn. Watch out for mood swings, they come suddenly and then disappear...like a frickin ninja on the attack. Be sure you eat enough (after the slight, yet sudden, nausea subsides). Though it isn't a technical stimulant, you still get stimulating effects an hour or two after you take it because it ups your norepinephine in your bloodstream. Therefore, your heart is stimulated and stays pumping strong well over the time the stimulating effects wear off. Wait a month before you decide if it is for you. The side effects that can wear off, wear off, and the drug's full effects will be appearent by then.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: heartburn, increased energy, feeling tense or on edge, tiredness increased, mood swings, elevated blood pressure, muscle spasms, constipation, decreased sex drive (libido), nausea, decreased appetite
