Well first time I ever took the sub I was asleep for like 12 hours knocked out cold. So I thought it was the sub making me so tired but after a couple times taking it I was back to normal so I think my body was just catching up on all the sleep I didnt get for years from being up late at night and getting up early to do my stuff!. Well I am not a dr. of course (good thing too) but that sounds like a lot of sub. thats 2 8 mg tabs 2 times a day? I started on only 2 mg two times a day and felt fine except sweaty for a couple days. I dont know there is a few of us on subs in this forum lets see what they say.

I hear you I was taking 2 80's a day but snorting them and that was the minimum I could function on more if I got my hands on them of course. So I know what you are going through!

Good to see you back, Oxygirl. That is alot of mgs of Sub, and probably is makeing you tired and giving you the stomach problems. Your could probably drop to 8 mgs a day and feel alot better. Glad to hear your doing good though. Keep us updated on how your doing.
