What I experienced was a good effect in the morning after taking the medicine, with lots of hunger in late afternoon. I also found that after a while it did less and less and taking more did not do anything except make me more tired. When I stopped taking it I go a lot of energy.

It seems to me like something builds up over time that stops it from working. If I stop for a few days it will work again. It doesn’t seem like tolerance because taking more makes it worse. What is so interesting is that after a couple of days off of it (and feeling a bit down), I start to feel energetic; just like I started taking it again and have lots of energy – even though I didn’t take anything! I’m wondering if it would be best to take it for a few days and then stop – when symptoms return take it again for a while – stop (repeat)

My guess is that a side effect appears as some metabolite builds up negating the good effects.
