Keep in mind I have only taken Lexatrim for a little over one week. The first day I took one pill in the morning and I was full of energy, but my mind melted by the end of the day. I couldn't make sense. So I cut it down to half and increased it as the days went by. I'm now up to two pills. I get energy, I still eat and snack on stuff... but I just do it in a hurry instead of taking my time. By 5pm I am so burnt out I feel I need more to get my daily chores out of the way. By the way, If you need to sit still (like work a clerical job) Don't take it - you will go mad!
