Update to this ----after I left work yesterday I began feeling really bad ...felt like I had red ants stinging me all over my body, while driving I kept getting that drop feeling, the kind you get on a straight down drop of a rollercoaster, then I was so dizzy I was sure I was going to pass out. I had to pull over off the side of the road, as I sat there for a few minutes, my ears started ringing my chest was on fire and my arms went numb.

Needless to say, I drove my self to the hospital (5 minutes away)and was admitted in the emergency room immediately ...My pulse rate was 160 !!!! I was there for 3 hours being pumped full of potassium to flush my system .......

Even though I had been taking them correctly for about 2 weeks ....and never had any problems .....I'm never taking them again. I made an accidental error when taking them and could have seriously hurt myself!!
