Just wanted to say thanks for the feedback on this. I went back down to 6 pills and I think it is now the right dose for me. I had some incredible success (if you catch my drift) with it today and I feel fantastic and very energetic! I think the 8 pill dosage was good to do once, because it seemed to really get things moving and relieve some of the bloating that I always have. However, I wouldn't try it again (unless I wasn't planning on working that day) and I would actually recommend that people only increase their dosage by one pill at a time (and not by adding 2 per day as is recommended on the bottle).
The good news is I now know why I've been so lethargic all these years. I am fascinated and revolted by what I see coming out of me. It really is creepy! lol!
