I would like to hear any opinions of people who take coq10 and how it effected them. Expecially negitive effects. I was taking 400 mgs of coq10 and didn't like the effects. This is also very expensive. Everything I read about coq10 is good. So what happened? Any feedback will be greatly apprieciated.

Re: coq10
I take 100 mgs. a day with no side effects. 400 mgs. seems high to me. How come you take so much?

Re: coq10
I take so much because I read in pro-health magizine that you need 1200 mgs.a day to achieve maxium results..

Re: coq10
I can't take more than 15mg or it "hypes" me up & makes me sick. But I have to take "pediatric" doses of everything.

Use it for energy & depression......

Re: coq10
Yes, this is what it does to me. I get all hyped up then irratable. Then I can't sleep. I take one the next day and I'm wired. Don't like the feeling. Maybe if I cut this down to 115mgs. What fooled me is when I took it the first day I feel nothing. Then after taking this after a couple of day's I start to feel agatated and all hyped up. Then I can't sleep. I kept thinking this was caused by something else but when I stopped taking the coenzine I felt better. When I would go out on Saturday night and have a couple of drinks I would get headaches but when I stopped taking the coq10 I didn't get the headache's with the alcohol. I don't think the coq10 mixes with alcohol. I never heard anything about not drinking with it so I did't put 2&2 together. I need to hear some more negative experences with coq10 because my friend takes this and swears up and down the coq10 is great and does not cause these problems. She says she never heard anyone complain of these problems with coq10 and she knows lots of people that take it.
