Made me lethargic with brain fog - Be careful with this one

I tried this yesterday morning. I was feeling really great before I took it very alert and in a great mood with lots of energy. After about an hour of taking it I was at my computer I could barely function I felt like the gravity was turned up and I just wanted to sleep (this never happens to me especially in the morning and after two cups of green tea too). To be fair I also took two other supplements that were different yesterday so I wasn't absolutely sure it was this one. But please read on. Today I still felt a little hung over from the effects yesterday to begin with but nothing as bad as the day before. I decided to try it again to make sure it was this supplement (kinda a stupid thing to do but I really wanted to believe the hype on this one so I was hoping it was something else that caused the lethargy) so today I did not take anything else except this one and sure enough here I am again feeling drugged about an hour later. So this is going in the trash. Please research this one, I wish I would have looked beyond just the reviews and checked the forums. There are people out there with the same exact reaction. There are people who say they used it and when they stopped their cognition was worse than before taking anything. I think this stuff is potentially dangerous.
This stuff is Fantastic

My doc wanted me to supplement with Adrenal Cortex Extract and put me on a liquid that I didn't do good on so I switch to this and boy did it do the trick. I feel alive again. He also put me on dhea since my numbers were way low, the combo has taken years off. Bye bye polymyalgia.
Great Product but Lost Hair

I love this product and I wish I could continue using it because I know my immune system radically improved, plus great energy and mental clarity but unfortunately I have lost about 1/2 of my hair in about 3 months time. I am a female so it affected me this way. I have tried using other brands that offer a lower dosage but my hair is still coming out. So now it's a choice between my immune system and going bald, which sucks! UPDATE: I stopped using it and I went back down quickly. I felt like I was 80 (a very unhealthy 80 year old). I forgot to mention that this also helped with my polymyalgia a lot. So I went to a wonderful doctor who tested me for my dhea levels and they were 23! which is insanely and scary low. So he put me back on and once again I feel great and alive again and feel this is saving my life. He also added Adrenal Cortex Extract. I decided to take the Adrenal Stress-End because it also had other stuff I was taking separately. And I really like this product as well. But I think my hair is suffering again. So now I am looking into dht blockers because I really cannot stop taking the Dhea if I want to be healthy. Will update again when I see how that goes.
