> > I used 200mcgs. chromium several years ago for almost a year, I was taking it to help control my weight, so I can't remember if it helped my depression. What I can remember is the reason I stopped taking it: I read a report that long term chromium usage had been proven to cause chromosonal changes in the body, specifically damaged chromosones. They didn't conclude what this actually meant to the individual, but since I knew that I wanted to get pregnant the next year, I didn't want to take any chances with my or my baby's chromosones.CarolAnn
> What you refer to is a study with rats showing chromium PICOLINATE could cause chromosone damage. The smae study also indicated that other forms of chromium are safe. In sum, the study did not prove that chromium picolinate is unsafe for humans, but to be safe get your chromium in another form.

I tried this for a week or so about two years ago. It gave me abdominal pain. It took me a few worried days to figure out what was causing the pain. As soon as I stopped taking it, the pain was gone. I don't remember the dose, probably whatever they print on the bottle.
