I can't believe I've forgotten my ptero 3 days in a row now. I was on such a routine and somehow it fell apart.

I'm not giving medical advice - but anyone on cholesterol meds - statins - really needs to take CoQ10 - IMveryHO... I've read too much about it not to be worried. MY DH chose to take cholesterol meds - which is his choice - he has irregular heartbeat and high BP, but I make sure he takes the CoQ10 with his other vitamins. CoQ10 helps the heart. And from what I've read about BP and estrogen - it's the drop in the estrogen after menopause that can raise the BP. I have a family history of heart disease, so I read up on these things. If I could control my DH's diet and ALL his choices, he would be off meds and on JUDDD and Ptero... but it's his decision and his life after all.

I feel like it helps me from the first day I start taking it. If it is a placebo effect I never want to know it! I have been trying taking 150mg all before breakfast and I am not finding it as effective as taking 100mg in the morning and then 50mg after lunch. I guess I will order more from Netrition as they carry the Jarrow Formula.

I'm happy for you Monica - and Babs. I know for me, the ptero didn't kick in for a few weeks - but we all react differently, that's for sure!

I started taking 50mg Jarrow ptero on DDs earlier this year but noticed no great difference.
At £19 ($31) for 60 caps it was expensive, so I kind of forgot about it - I take quite a lot of supplements.

Then, last week, I read Nancy's early comments that her marionette lines faded when she took it and I immediately became very interested indeed!

So, on my last two DDs I've taken 2 caps midday-ish on an empty stomach (I don't do breakfast) and I must say I've not felt as hungry in the afternoons.
Yesterday, I took an extra 50mg about 4pm but didn't notice any greater effect on appetite.

I noticed Goner says her skin is tightening too, so I have high hopes.
Just need to remember to take it on UDs as well.

I ordered some more.

I hope it comes soon, so I still have some 50s left and can use a combo of the two!

Most of us get ours on line where you get 3 for one at a very reasonable price. The caps are 150mg, though, but that seems to a good amount to take.

I find it really helps. I went to a group luncheon yesterday and was served a salad. I brought over half of it home and didn't eat any more for the day. A DD that I thought would be an UD stayed a DD!

thanks all for your suggestions. I got wanted to get is asap from a local store but will definitely consider shopping online next time!.

So here is my update. The dd went well until about 3pm. I then started to tell myself that I hadn't eaten much and I "should" eat more because it's not good to be running on fumes. So I had my WW meal. then I am not sure what happened, I grabbed a snack, then cookie, glass of milk , PBJ, small amount of soup and started to binge!!! Almost in a self destructive manor. I wasn't stressed and cant say I was hungry so I will post this question out there.

I surprising only gained 1 lb. not sure if its because I fasted till 12 or maybe didn't eat as much as I think about 1500 cals?. I am feeling ok today and will make today my high day and start again tomorrow. will continue taking the pill.

lol. Over and over again I try the ptero hoping for a different outcome--it certainly does help with hunger, but sadly makes me soooo restless and sleepless! dammit.

Ok is this too good to be true.... I started yesterday with the ptero at 50mg. Had a bad eating night....however today I took another one... I am not hungry again!!! I had to force myself to have a fruit salad. Maybe its too soon to judge but I have no interest in food! Usually I am thinking about my next meal. I read through a lot of the previous comments. looks like some experienced headaches, stomach pains, insomnia... nothing soo far....I am very pleased. will report back after a week! I have not been able to do Juddd because of the calorie restriction. Hopefully this helps me stay on track!

Why do I have visions of illicit drugs running through my mind, and a frantic attempt to quell the withdrawals, while sitting in your car?

I know! I felt shifty eyed, and certain I'd be spotted by undercover narcs.
Flashbacks of being sent to the principal's office in grade one because my teacher had discovered my pockets were full of pills. My mum, bless her dorky alternative heart, used to send us with vitamin C to take every 45 minutes during the school day.

Cindy: May I ask how many mg per day you take? Do you take them all at once? How long have you been taking them? I bought some from Netrition (I think) many months ago but never got into a routine of taking them. I need to dig out that bottle and start again, I think.

I take 150 each morning, must be 18 months now. I used to take 1 50 tablet and I thought it may have helped. As soon as I increased to 150 I know it helps.
