    I've taken supplement for two days now and two days in a row I've gotten a headache for about two hrs. after taking the supplement. Could this be a herx? It affects my stomach too but I've eaten more with it and it wasn't as bad today. I think I feel a little fluish too. Please if anyone knows about this could they look over the list and try to figure out if this could be a herx reaction. Thank you sooooo much. I lost the receipt so think taken it back is out of the question. I spent $35 for a two month supply.

    Any comments on those. Please help I don't want to take back this great vitamin. I think I'll just have to either cut the pill in half or stand the herxing for a few days. If it doesn't get better then I'll cut it in half. My main symptom is headache. Thanks for listening.

    I believe it is a herxheimer affect and I will get use to it. My Mom is very knowledgeable about these things and she said to just hang in there so I took the 3rd pill today. This is my third day on it. I have considered splitting the pill in two but so far I'll see if headache is less today. I'll keep you posted grammy, thank you for posting,
    Hope you don't get another migrane and hope you're feeling better.
    Gentle Hugs,

    Chromium and Selenium is what does it for me every time. I get a headache and I feel like I am burning up but don't have a fever. My blood pressure will go up. What I do until I get use to it or not, is take one every 2 or 3 days instead of every day. This is what professionals suggest as well. Cut the one in half and make sure you take it with a meal and a full glass of water.

    Good Luck! Pam

    So far no headache and no stomachache today. Emmm? I think things are getting better but that dreaded 2 hour mark hasn't arrived yet.

    Thank you Pam for that suggestion, I will use that if I herx again today.

    I hope I can take these because they are suppose to be good for you and really supplements my diet since my CFS and FM keep me from cooking bigger and better meals. I'm stepping up my health regime but it's a process. So I guess I look for a quick fix while changing old habits.

    I also quit cigarettes and am wearing a nicotine patch. OMGosh you probably think, that's the cause but the patch is worn all morning w/o headache and all evening. I take it off at bedtime. Cigarettes have so many toxic chemicals in them I think the herbal detoxes are getting rid of that stuff in my system. My pain was less even the first day I quit.

    Hugs,
