Anyone ever take herbal supplements? I have been taking the GNC menopause vitapack for almost a year. Now the perimeno symptoms are getting worse as I think I may now be in the later stages of perimenopause. Anyway I just added vitex (chasteberry) 2 caps a day (about 800 mg-it's by Nature's Way), in addtion to **** Quai and Dandelion Root (for water retention). I feel like I have all of a sudden blown up in bloating the last couple days. I was good over the holidays and have not slacked off on my workouts or my water intake. I am just so damned frustrated right now. Hoping these herbs will help. I am afraid to get on the scale at this point, so I dont think I will for a few days! And the mood swings! OMG. Anyone able to give me some advice?
