> Hey
> I started out taking 2 25mg tablets daily, then eventually i took 2 in the morning and 1 a night-and after that i worked my way up to 100 mg a day. My side effects started out with just tingly fingers and toes, didnt bother me though it made me laugh :) Then my taste buds got all messed up, soda tasted really bad and some other foods also. Then i started to feel confused and i also had blurry eye sight, which got annoying but it wore off. I also craved healthy foods, which was a plus!


I find it amazing that there is such a random timing with the dosage or is it just the neurosurgeons who set the definite schedules? or is it a Canadian thing? and I do remember how upsetting it was to start taking it in the mornings... to the point that I dreaded taking it in the mornings when I came to the time to add the morning doses...

and I am really interested in your comment about craving healthy foods... I am still on my protein craving kick... forget the sweet foods and the sandwiches and the not particularly good for one foods... and that is really not normal for me...
and it is almost as if someone innoculated me with an anti-chocolate substance...
as for this recent anti-caffeine kick that I have been on... that is beginning to raise comment among people who know me... even among people who know me only slightly...
the waitresses at the restaurant I frequent now bring me water without ice cubes as soon as I walk in... and wait to see if I want a coffee or not... I can not stand ice cubes in water or soft drinks and have taken to craving orange juice, something I would not have considered as mildly potable a few months ago...
my whole lifestyle is changing...
Cheese!!! oh, I liked brie and camembert and gorgonzolla and other veined cheeses but now I even like and want cheddar and oka and heaven knows what other kinds of cheese...
I am beginning to sound like a health nut and before long will be eating tofu...
