Hi CE, thanks for your input. Is Bontril another name for Phen Phen? (Or is it Fen Fen?) Wiki says it's a prodrug of meth? That can't be right.

I have some supplements coming-- so hopefully they'll help. My energy fluctuates every few months, and right now I'm very low. Whether it's 'just' mood or chronic fatigue, I hate it :( I hesitate to try a stimulant again because after awhile they feel sh*tty.

How have you been doing?
